A young man identified only as Geury on Saturday night became the first victim of that day of a shooting in the Santa Lucía neighborhood (La Mosca), in the municipal district of Santiago Oeste (Cienfuegos), a fact that the population attributes to shootings that have become daily in these neighborhoods, especially during curfew hours.
