Alejandro Cowo

Two hours before the shooting of Paredes, police were processing the scene of yet another incident on Central American Boulevard. An argument between a Lebanese businessman and his employee did not end well when he took out his licensed firearm and shot the truck driver. But although Felicito Cho was injured to his wrist and received abrasions on his forehead, he has given a statement to police that he is not pressing charges against his boss.  ASP Cowo details what happened just after five p.m. on Saturday.
