By "El Huaso" for Borderland Beat

Last night, Hilario García Pineda, the former Director of Public Security was attacked by gunmen in Valle de Santiago. He is in critical condition.

Gunshots were reported around 9:00 p.m. on the intersection of Albino García and Libertad streets, in the center of Valle de Santiago. Municipal Police responded and found García still conscious, and rushed him to the hospital.

García took on the role of Director in August 2022 after the former director stepped down due to increased violence in the region. García would later step down six months later in March 2023, citing personal reasons.
