18-year-old girl killed by robbers
Villa Lugano was in shock yesterday after 18-year-old Melina López was killed after receiving a gunshot to the head during a robbery in the neighbourhood on Tuesday evening. López and her boyfriend were stopped by two armed assailants who demanded their belongings at gunpoint. The pair reportedly did not resist the robbery but she was shot in the head in circumstances that remain unclear. She died of her injuries about an hour later after having been picked up by a passing ambulance. An investigation has begun but no suspects have been identified.
