Gunman kills five at Chile casino

Last week shootout at local casino near the Chile capital of Santiago resulted in five people being killed and the perpetrator reportedly still at large.

Shocking footage of the shooting, which can be watched online, shows gamblers desperately try to flee the carnage in the municipality of Puente Alto, near Santiago de Chile, Chile.

According to reports, the altercation started when a man and a woman began to argue in the venue. It spilled over to include at least one other man before the shooter pulled out a gun and began to fire. The disturbance, most of which was caught on surveillance cameras, resulted in the deaths of four men and one woman at the scene as casino visitors dove for cover anywhere they could find it.

The shooter fired shots using a gun that had been adapted to fire a large number of bullets in quick succession. Crime scene investigators counted 70 casings at the scene and are still investigating the incident.

“The investigation is focused on finding the suspect and arresting him.
Officers are also working to find out if there were other people involved and if the victims had any relationship with the aggressor,” said the lead investigator Hector Barros.

Victims were aged 18-47 and three of them had criminal records.
