In the early hours of Wednesday, four gunmen armed with rifles entered a hospital in Guayaquil city, where one person died as a result of the armed attack.
Apparently the hitmen wanted to kill a man who was wounded by a bullet while traveling in a vehicle last week. This patient, however, was protected by private guards.
The acts of violence continued outside the hospital, where other private guards who were on the street confronted the hitmen.
The traces of the shooting that occurred in the street were imprinted in the footprints left on the hospital façade and in a nearby building.
