A man in the Dominican Republic has been shot dead by police after apparently defying a Coronavirus curfew rule. As The Daily Mail reports:
A man was shot dead during a confrontation with the police in the Dominican Republic on Monday night after he defied a curfew imposed for the outbreak of coronavirus.
Edwin Cespedes was outside his home when he was approached by a National Police unit that was enforcing a nationwide evening lockdown order.
A witness told local press that the 30-year-old tussled with at least four officers who attempted to placed him under arrest.
The witness added that a motorcycle police unit then showed up and that one of cops fired the shot that struck Cespedes in the head before fleeing the scene.
Truly a disturbing stories, as the Coronavirus panic continues to play out, let us hope the similar scenes don’t begin to play out in the U.S. as well.
