Chilean Police Officer Slain by Fellow Cop

SANTIAGO – A member of Chile’s militarized national police, the Carabineros, was fatally shot by another cop in the southern town of Chillan Viejo, authorities said Wednesday.

The killing took place late Tuesday, as Cpl. Daniel Aravena Rodriguez, 26, and his parents were walking near a checkpoint on their way to the wake of a recently deceased relative.

Carabineros Cpl. Sebastian Fuentealba Toro approached Aravena and spoke to him, but the other man did not answer.

Within seconds, Fuentealba drew his gun and shot Aravena five times, killing him instantaneously.

“Daniel was going to the wake of another family member with his mom and dad. Then this person appeared, who is also a Carabinero, practically the same age ... he came, he pulled his weapon and he fired. He didn’t give him time for anything. He killed him in front of his mom and dad,” the victim’s aunt, Paula Vejar, told Radio Cooperativa.

Fuentealba fled the scene after the shooting, but later surrendered to authorities, who suggested the murder was the result of a personal dispute between the two men.
