It happened at 3:00 p.m. at the corner of Colón and Acha streets, in the Lomas del Millón neighborhood, where two agents arrived, alerted by a woman about the presence of two thieves who were robbing the area.

The police officers saw two suspects walking who were called to stop but returned shots. There began the exchange of shots that ended with one of the thieves falling with a gunshot wound to the ankle. His accomplice managed to hide behind a parked car.

At one point, that criminal took advantage of the fact that the agents were not on their mobile phones and ran at full speed to get into the patrol car. He got in the driver’s side, accelerated to full speed and got away. A security camera managed to capture the escape.

The vehicle was found minutes later in the Carlos Gardel neighborhood of El Palomar, Morón district. The thief escaped running through the corridors.

The other injured criminal was identified as Enzo Rodrigo Ortiz, 19 years old. He was arrested and it was found that he had a criminal record.

The act was classified as “aggravated robbery by the use of a firearm and resistance to authority.”

According to what could be reconstructed so far, the criminals had stolen a Renault Kangoo van minutes before, which was left 80 meters from the place where they were intercepted by the police.
