Bloody Weekend In Puerto Rico Leaves Nearly 20 Dead

(Caribbean360News):  SAN JUAN, Puerto Rico, Wednesday November 28, 2012 – Puerto Ricans are counting their losses after the long Thanksgiving weekend turned into a bloody rampage that left almost a score of people dead.

The carnage was scattered throughout the island and largely resulted from automatic weapons fired from moving cars in attacks authorities describe as drug-related.

The majority of the killings nevertheless took place in the most densely populated districts of San Juan, Caguas, Carolina, Ponce and Bayamon.

Bayamon was the location of the recent murder of ex-world champion boxer Hector “Macho” Camacho, whose companion in the car riddled with machine-gun bullets, Alberto Yamil Mojica, had a record of drug offenses.
