Dominican Republic: Two radio journalist shot dead mid-broadcast

15.02.2017, 12:55

Three men have been arrested after two journalists were killed during a live radio broadcast in the Dominican Republic, BBC reports.

One of the journalists was filming his show on Facebook Live when he was shot. The footage showed his broadcast interrupted by gunfire and a panicked woman shouting "Shots! Shots! Shots!".

Police said the shooting happened on Tuesday in San Pedro de Macoris, east of the capital Santo Domingo. The two journalists killed were presenter Luis Manuel Medina and radio producer Leo Martinez.

A woman was also injured and is undergoing surgery, said local authorities.

"The investigations have begun and we will try, with all the means in our powers, to reach the truth," Attorney General Jean Rodriguez told the local press.
