According to the National Army, two people died on the spot when they were shot, while another three later lost their lives from gunshot wounds.

For example, a structure of the Remaining Organized Armed Groups (GAO-r), which is committing crimes in the area, reached the establishment and shot at the people who were there as a movement against GAO-Urías Rondón to control the territory, Blu Radio.

In this context, the ex-guerrilla of the Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia (FARC) Rodrigo Granda has reiterated on his social networks that this new massacre, number 73 this year, does not fully highlight “the responsibility of the state” to implement the Havana Agreement, something that “costs life”.

The government and the FARC signed a peace agreement in Havana in September 2016 after four years of negotiations. Granda herself was a member of the negotiating group.
