A home security camera recorded the moment Kelvin Suárez Pin was shot in the chest.
The events occurred while the victim was sitting in a chair, during the wake of a friend.
Kelvin Suárez was crying over the death of his friend when he was shot dead in the chest.
The police reported that the homicide happened on the night of Thursday, July 6, 2023.
This occurred in the 2 de Agosto neighborhood of the Eloy Alfaro parish, in the Manta canton.
The 28-year-old man was meeting with other people at the home of Byron Gutiérrez, who had been killed by hit men at six in the afternoon.
They were crying in the house, and at that moment one of the assistants pulled out a gun and tried to shoot into the air.
As he drew the gun, a shot escaped, a police report says.
The shot hit Kelvin Suárez Pin in the chest, who fell to the ground as a result of the impact.
At that time, the people who were at the site transferred the wounded man to the Daniel Acosta de Cuba subcenter to try to save his life.
However, the doctors at the health center could not do anything for the man because he was already dead.
Police reported that the victim had a single bullet impact in the chest, near the heart.
The authorities arrived at the place and ordered the removal of the body and its transfer to the Forensic Center to carry out the autopsy.
The deceased leaves two children in the orphanage.
