Five people were killed and another six injured Sunday when gunmen opened fire at a group in a beach bar in the violence-ridden Cordoba department.
A heavily armed group arrived at the bar in the San Antero municipality around 7PM and opened fire indiscriminately at everyone present.
According to Medellin newspaper El Colombiano, one of the victims was a member of the navy.
All injured were taken to nearby hospitals.
Police, accompanied by the Navy, have begun an investigation.
The Cordoba department is one of the departments that’s hardest hits by fighting between FARC fronts and criminal groups formed by former members of the paramilitary AUC. In the first eight months of 2011, 356 people were killed, despite an increase in security forces who were sent to the region in January after two students from a prestigious Bogota university were killed.
