Police say that Mr Aldana was standing by a bar located in San Pedrito Area, San Pedro, when he was approached by a man he knows. That person fired five shots in Ivan Aldana’s direction, and one of those bullets caught him in his right upper back.
He was then rushed to the San Pedro Polyclinic. An x-ray was taken at the Polyclinic where it showed that the bullet was lodged in his spine.
Ivan Aldana was then transported to K.H.M.H in a serious condition.
