Sofía was shot dead and her partner injured in an attack on their home.

A Chevrolet Corsa stopped at the door of the house, Sofia Vera went out the door with her partner and a burst of several shots ended her life. The man had to be hospitalized in a serious condition in hospital and the attackers quickly fled. Furthermore, a woman took away a 6-year-old boy in a taxi, who after several hours was reintegrated with his family after they managed to stop her.

The facts are confusing whichever way you look at it and at this moment Roca's prosecutor on duty, Ricardo Romero, is trying to decode the data he has. At the moment a woman is in custody and her partner is being intensely sought as a possible perpetrator of the crime.

The night was intense for the Roca police. The drug war has been unleashed for a long time and it seems that there is nothing to put an end to the multiplication of dealers, the arrival of foreign criminals to continue to be linked to that business and all the crimes that go hand in hand with the sale of drugs. Some are encouraged to compare the present of the neighborhoods with what is happening in Rosario, a city in which crimes related to the sale of drugs have grown exponentially in recent years and have ramifications in all strata of power.

It all started shortly before 10 pm on Friday, at the door of a house on calle Jachal at 1600 in the El Porvenir neighborhood, an intermediate sector between Roca and JJ Gómez. Sofia, a [trans woman] known to her neighbors, fell to the floor with several gunshot wounds. Her 42-year-old partner had to be rushed to the local hospital after also being shot in the body.

Investigative procedures took place throughout the night in the neighborhoods of the city, until several hours later they managed to locate a woman, who was detained by order of the prosecution after taking away a six year-old minor away in a taxi. This woman is the partner of a very dangerous criminal, with a record of participation in crimes and drug trafficking.
