Late on Thursday, Venezuelan Army General Wilmer Antonio Moreno was killed in Anzoategui state, northeast Venezuela.

Unofficial sources said that some people approached the military official, asked who he was and when he answered he was shot.

The news was posted on social networks. Sources claimed that Moreno was shot 10 times, but other reports clarified that he was shot seven times.

Moreno was a close collaborator of the current Venezuelan government. He played a role in the attempted coup of 2002, which sought to overthrow then President Carlos Andrés Pérez.

Under Hugo Chávez's administration, Moreno was head of Plan Bolivar 2000 and deputy director of the Military Intelligence Directorate (DIM). He was also director of the General Sectoral Enrollment Office and commander of the garrison of Mérida state.

People close to the Venezuelan government claimed that Moreno was killed by hired assassins.
