An elderly adult is in serious condition after being shot in the face, in Puerto Varas, in the Los Lagos region.

The Homicide Brigade of the Investigative Police (PDI) is working to clarify the circumstances in which an 84-year-old man ended up with a ballistic injury in the town of New Braunau.

The wound keeps him hospitalized, with serious injuries, at the Puerto Montt Hospital.

Meanwhile, the Public Ministry ordered the PDI to carry out procedures to clarify the fact. This was pointed out by the prosecutor (s) Alejandro Gómez, who explained that the firearm “would be a spell.”
