La Diva

"La Diva" was shot in the chest at around 1am on Thursday 10th October.

A 30-year-old foreign [trans woman], known as 'La Diva' in the streets of the Guaduas municipality of Cundinamarca, was killed by a subject who shot her in the chest that ended her life.

The incident occurred in the early hours of last Thursday in the vicinity of the El PerĂº sector, located on the Pan-American Highway, in the municipality of Guaduas. The victim was lying on the pavement and was immediately transferred to a health center, where she entered without vital signs.

Some witnesses said that 'La Diva' had an argument with a man who, full of rage, took out a gun and shot her without compassion, while others claim that the deceased tried to rob the subject. Police authorities have not confirmed either of these two versions.
