Suspect in murder of Venezuelan priest under arrest
The suspect was wanted on murder charges
The suspect, identified as Yender Briceño, aged 24, and commonly known as "El Titi," was wanted by the police in connection with the murder of a driver early in January. He is associated with a criminal gang known as "El Tico."
Father Mendoza was shot dead on Sunday at 11 p.m. by two men riding a motorcycle who tried to steal his car.
No pellets, tear gas or 9mm firearm projectiles were enough. Several unpublished videos confirm what some witnesses had already warned in the very afternoon of February 12: that day, the Bolivarian National Intelligence Service (Sebin) shot a different type of bullets whose ammunition shells were picked up by the very officers who triggered the weapons.
