9-year-old tourist from New York was killed in less than an hour after arriving in the Dominican Republic for spring break. Robbers shot and killed a boy who was driving with his father in a rented car from the airport to the hotel, according to Fox News, citing local police.
Gioser Luis Feliz arrived with his father in Santiago and got into a rented car to get to the hotel . According to police, a group of men began to chase the vehicle, tried to stop it and rob it. Seeing that the car did not stop, the criminals opened fire, and one of the bullets hit the boy in the head. Gyoser died in the hospital on the operating table.
Two days later, the police detained six suspects. At least one of them knew the father of the deceased boy, Sergio Luis Felis. The man suggests that a photograph posted on social networks from a trip could serve as a tip for the crime.
President of the Dominican Republic, Luis Abinader, called the murder a “terrible crime.” “Since I learned about the death of the child Gioser Luis Feliz, I have been following the developments in this case. I was informed by the chief of the national police about the arrest of 5 criminals who committed this terrible crime. Now justice must be ensured in the courts,” the president wrote.
