December 9, 2014

SAN JUAN, Puerto Rico (AP) — Puerto Rico police say they have solved a 10-year-old killing of a government official and two of his daughters.

Superintendent Jose Caldero says five suspects have been charged with three counts of murder in the December 2004 killing of court ombudsman for minors Antonio Barcelo and two daughters, ages 24 and 15.

Caldero said Tuesday that Barcelo was picking them up from a concert when gunmen mistook him for a rival who drove a similar car and opened fire. Three others were injured.

Caldero says 11 suspects are believed to be involved in the killing. He said five have been killed, three are in prison for unrelated charges, two are fugitives and one has been arrested. He said officials believe one fugitive is in Florida and the other in Massachusetts.
