Morón: 15-year-old dies at school after being hit by stray bullet

A 15-year-old girl died today after being hit by a stray bullet at the Félix Burgos Parochial school, in the Buenos Aires district of Morón, following a shootout between police and criminals in the vicinity.

According to police reports, the tragedy occurred this morning at a school situated in Santiago Solari and Chile streets, minutes after a shooting between police officers and criminals was registered in a nearby area.

The girl, identified as Sabrina Olmos, was shot in the chest during class recess and was seriously injured, while police forces were chasing a group in a stolen car. According to police reports, the bullet ricocheted off a door and was deflected towards the uncovered patio of the school.

Members of the college faculty called for an ambulance, but after the vehicle was delayed they took the girl to a health centre themselves, where she died minutes later.

"She arrived at the health centre unconscious. She did not respond to CPR. She had a wound at the exact height of her heart," Morón's Health subsecretary Carlos Grillo explained later.

The Police later informed that one suspect had been arrested following the fatal shootout, while a Fiat Palio car and firearm were also seized. The man held was identified as José Luis 'Coche' Rodríguez, 25 and a Morón resident.
