The Commissioner also emphasized that there are “few” criminal organizations in Puerto Rico and that only “there are ten.”
The police are now concentrating on the investigation into the murder of David Rivera Batiz, a young man who was identified as responsible for the death of three officers in the shooting that occurred this week and who was found dead with a sign in Santurce.
López indicated that since there are few organizations that are linked to drug trafficking on the island, they could already know who is the author of the murder of the 25-year-old.
