A 15-year-old boy dies after a shooting in the Madrid neighborhood of Villaverde


A 15-year-old has died and another 21-year-old has been seriously injured three times in a shooting this Sunday in a park in Madrid’s Villaverde. The National Police, which has taken over the investigation, assures that it could be a new incident between gangs.

The event took place around 11:15 p.m. on Sunday on Calle de Angosta. The perpetrator of the crime approached the two victims, who were sitting in a park, and shot them point-blank before fleeing on the run, according to sources from the Madrid Police Headquarters.

Due to the “modus operandi” used in the attack, the investigators hypothesize that the events are related to disagreements between members of youth gangs, although the investigations by Homicide agents are at an initial point and this point is not yet confirmed.

The crime occurred around 11:15 p.m. this Sunday, when witnesses notified the emergency services of two young people shot in a park located between Camino de Legan├ęs and Angosta streets.

The displaced Samur-Civil Protection physicians found a minor under 15 years of age in cardiorespiratory arrest. After 40 minutes of resuscitation maneuvers, they failed to reverse it, so they had to confirm his death.

The toilets also treated the murdered person’s companion, a 21-year-old man who also had gunshot wounds to the abdomen. Once stabilized, he was taken in serious condition to the 12 de Octubre hospital.

At the scene, a psychologist from Samur treated the parents of the deceased, as well as a friend.

If it is confirmed that the crime is linked to youth gangs, it would be the fifth murder perpetrated in the Community of Madrid so far this year.
