Maryuri Solorzano: “in Venezuela people die like dogs”
Maryori Solorzano, survivee of the attack, told Radio City the horror she lived during the incident in which her brother and two other relatives were killed.
“We were waiting in the car, then a guy came to ask for a lighter. We do not smoke, we do not have one … He returned two, three times, and my husband bluntly told him that we did not have a lighter, and to stop bothering us, and the guy was upset. He swore, the guy pushed him, my husband pushed him too … after that the guy returned with a gun and started shooting,” Solorzano narrated.
The other five injured were taken to the hospital, with the help of a sister in law, who saved herself because she dropped to the ground, and her relative, the same they received in the bus terminal and was coming from Ecuador.
“Cousin Carolina is in intensive care … My other brother is already reacting … my daughter is in the hospital; my nephew was discharged, he was shot twice,” she said about her wounded relatives.
“In Caracas it seems that guns are toys, everybody carries them, everywhere. Here people die like dogs and they are left dying,” lamented Solorzano, who has spent 20 years living in Venezuela.
She said they have received support from the Embassy of Ecuador and they want to repatriate the remains, and she and other family members want to return home.
