El hecho
En horas de la tarde de este domingo, las víctimas transitaban por la referida avenida, específicamente a la altura de la Iglesia El Carmen, donde se desarrollaba una concentración, cuando presuntamente un grupo de motorizados armados dispararon contra las personas que estaban en el lugar.

La víctima, de 61 años de edad, murió minutos después de haber ingresado al Hospital Periférico de Catia, mientras que las personas lesionadas son atendidas en el citado centro asistencial.

Cabe destacar que la septuagenaria era enfermera del Hospital Dr. Miguel Pérez Carreño.

Por su parte, el ministro de Relaciones Interiores, Justicia y Paz, Néstor Reverol, complementó que los tres heridos fueron trasladados al hospital Periférico de Catia, mientras que el director del Cicpc hizo acto de presencia en el lugar del hecho con una comisión especial de la División de Homicidios dirigiendo la investigación.

Arzobispo de Caracas
Entre tanto, la Conferencia Episcopal Venezolana (CEV) repudió los hechos en los que también se vio afectado el cardenal Jorge Urosa, arzobispo de Caracas.

La CEV señaló que Urosa se mantuvo por más de una hora en la Iglesia de El Carmen "junto a más de 200 personas asediado por colectivos".

Finalmente, se conoció que el cardenal logró salir de la iglesia y se encuentra "fuera de peligro", informó la CEV.

Woman, 61, shot dead in Venezuela voting queue

 Footage shows voters panicking as a shot is heard

A nurse aged 61 has been shot dead while waiting to vote in an unofficial, opposition-organised referendum in Venezuela's capital, Caracas.

Men on motorbikes fired at a queue, killing her and wounding three others.

Venezuela is in crisis, and more than 100 people have died in political clashes since April.

More than 7m people cast ballots in Sunday's vote, according to a group of academics monitoring the referendum, which has no legal status.

The rector of the Central University of Venezuela, Cecilia García Arocha, said 6,492,381 people voted within the country and another 693, 789 at polling stations abroad.

Voting yes or no to three questions, 98% rejected the new assembly proposed by President Nicolas Maduro and backed a call for elections before his term of office ends in 2019.

They also voted for the armed forces to defend the current constitution.

The opposition blamed a "paramilitary" gang for the shooting incident. Video from the scene showed people rushing away from the gunshots, as many fled to a church.

Opposition spokesman Carlos Ocariz said of the shooting: "We lament this very much, with great pain."

Prosecutors said they would investigate the incident, and the woman was named as Xiomara Soledad Scott.

She died minutes after reaching hospital.

Separately, journalist Luis Olavarrieta was kidnapped, robbed and beaten by a group of people. He managed to escape and images emerged of him receiving medical attention.

• What is behind the turmoil in Venezuela?

An official vote will be held on 30 July for a new assembly, which would have the power to rewrite the constitution and to dissolve state institutions.

But critics say the new assembly could herald dictatorship.

Opposition politicians organised Sunday's unofficial poll, held in improvised polling stations at theatres, sports grounds and roundabouts within Venezuela and in more than 100 countries around the world.

While the vote was only symbolic, BBC South America correspondent Katy Watson said the opposition hoped that a high turnout would heap pressure on the government.

Queues started to form early and there was a festive atmosphere in most places.

But President Nicolas Maduro described Sunday's vote as "meaningless".

"They have convened an internal consultation with the opposition parties, with their own mechanisms, without electoral rulebooks, without prior verification, without further verification. As if they are autonomous and decide on their own," he said.
  
Forensic scientists examined the scene, where bloodstains were visible

Catia, where the shooting happened, is a poorer part of the Venezuelan capital where support for the socialist government, headed first by Hugo Chavez and since his death by Mr Maduro, has historically been high.

Mr Maduro argues that the constituent assembly is the only way to help Venezuela out of its economic and political crisis.

He has said that a new constitution would "neutralise" the opposition and defeat "coup-plotters" and thereby promote peace in Venezuela.

Opposition leaders fear that the process of setting up a new constituent assembly and rewriting the constitution would almost certainly delay this year's regional elections and next year's presidential election.

They also fear that the constituent assembly would further weaken the National Assembly, Venezuela's opposition-controlled legislative body.

The country is in a deep economic crisis, made worse by the falling price of oil, which accounts for about 95% of its export revenues and was used to finance some of the government's generous social programmes. Forced to make cuts, President Nicolas Maduro has seen his support fall among core backers
Also, as a result of the crisis, parts of Venezuela face severe shortages of basic supplies such as medicine and food
The opposition accuses Mr Maduro of not only mismanaging the economy but also eroding the country's democratic institutions
In March, the Supreme Court decided it would take over the National Assembly. The decision was reversed, but Mr Maduro was accused by opponents of trying to stage a coup. That sparked almost daily protests calling for his resignation
Meanwhile, Mr Maduro says the opposition is trying to overthrow his government illegally, and blames the country's problems on an "economic war" being waged against him

ROBBERY - THEFT

California stun-gun robbery spree: 3 women on the loose in LA area
Published July 16, 2017 Fox News
  
   
Cops in Los Angeles County are on the hunt for a group of women accused of robbing at least two stores -- and using a stun gun to shock staffers who got in the way.

One robbery unfolded just before 9 p.m. last Thursday at a CVS in Temple City. The other occurred closer to 10 p.m. that same day at a Vons grocery store in Arcadia, Fox 11 reported.

The stores are within three miles of each other, according to KABC.

At CVS, two women entered the store, cleared an estimated $1,000 worth of merchandise off the shelves and turned to make their getaway. A manager approached the women when one of the suspects pulled out a stun gun and activated it, KTLA reported.

Less than an hour later, three female suspects entered Vons and tried again to steal an unspecified amount of baby formula, according to investigators. When approached by a security guard, one of the women used a stun gun to shock the guard, Fox 11 added.
   
In both instances, the women were described as black, in their mid-30s and dressed in black clothing. They got into a red four-door car with paper license plates, which could possibly be a Kia or Ford Focus, Fox 11 reported.

Women shock security guards with stun gun during store robberies in Temple City, Arcadia

ARCADIA (FOX 11 / CNS) - One of three female suspects shocked a security guard at an Arcadia grocery store during a robbery, which appears to be related to a similar robbery in Temple City, authorities said Friday.

At 9:54 p.m. Thursday, officers went to a Vons at 745 W. Naomi Ave. in Arcadia, where three women confronted a store security guard who attempted to stop them from leaving without paying for the merchandise in their possession, said Arcadia police Sgt. John Bonomo. One of the women used a stun-gun type weapon to shock the security guard, he said.

"Fearing for his safety, he stepped away and watched as the three women entered a red vehicle,'' Bonomo said. "The vehicle was last seen fleeing east on Naomi Avenue.''

The security guard reported a minor injury but declined immediate medical attention, the sergeant added.
  
The women were described as black, in their mid 30s and all wearing black clothing, Bonomo said.

About an hour before the Arcadia robbery, two women entered a Temple City CVS Pharmacy at 5585 Rosemead Blvd. where two women were stealing clothes, said Sgt. Richard Lewis of the Temple City Sheriff's Station. When confronted, one of the women used a stun gun on a security
guard, causing him to back away, Lewis said.

The women got into a red, four-door car with paper license plates, possibly a Kia or Ford Focus, and sped away, sheriff's Lt. Ronald Daily told the San Gabriel Valley Tribune.

The security guard was checked out by paramedics but did not wish to be taken to a hospital, the newspaper reported.

Daily said he believed the robberies are related.

Venezuela referendum: Big show of support for opposition
1 hour ago Latin America & Caribbean
  
 Footage shows voters panicking as a shot is heard

More than seven million voters have taken part in an opposition-organised referendum in Venezuela, according to academics monitoring the poll.

Voters strongly opposed government plans for a new constituent assembly with the power to scrap the National Assembly and re-write the constitution.

Venezuela is polarised between backers of President Maduro and the opposition, which wants fresh elections.

A nurse was shot dead while queuing to vote in the capital, Caracas.

Men on motorbikes opened fire, killing 61-year-old Xiomara Soledad Scott, and wounding three others.

The opposition blamed a "paramilitary" gang for the shooting, which prosecutors said they would investigate.

Separately, journalist Luis Olavarrieta was kidnapped, robbed and beaten by what he said was a a group of government supporters, but managed to escape.

More than 100 people have died in clashes and protests in Venezuela since April.

'Defend constitution'

The rector of the Central University of Venezuela, Cecilia García Arocha, said 6,492,381 people voted within the country and another 693,789 at polling stations abroad. However, the vote has no legal status.

The turnout is slightly less than the 7.7m people who voted for opposition candidates at the 2015 parliamentary elections. There are 19.5m registered voters in the country.

Voting yes or no to three questions, 98% rejected the new assembly proposed by President Maduro and backed a call for elections before his term of office ends in 2019.

They also voted for the armed forces to defend the current constitution.

Sunday's unofficial poll was held in improvised polling stations at theatres, sports grounds and roundabouts within Venezuela and in more than 100 countries around the world.

The opposition plans to burn ballot papers from the informal poll so those who voted against the government cannot be identified and victimised.

While the vote was only symbolic, BBC South America correspondent Katy Watson said the opposition hoped that a high turnout would heap pressure on the government.

But Mr Maduro described Sunday's vote as "meaningless".

Mr Maduro argues that the constituent assembly is the only way to help Venezuela out of its economic and political crisis.

On the same day as the unofficial referendum, the government held a "trial run" for the 30 July vote, which it described as a success.

Opposition leaders fear that the process of setting up a new constituent assembly and rewriting the constitution would almost certainly delay this year's regional elections and next year's presidential election.

They also fear that the constituent assembly would further weaken the National Assembly, Venezuela's opposition-controlled legislative body.

Paint It Black - The Rolling Stones

I see a red door and I want it painted black
No colours anymore, I want them to turn black
I see the girls walk by dressed in their summer clothes
I have to turn my head until my darkness goes
I see a line of cars and they're all painted black
With flowers and my love, both never to come back
I see people turn their heads and quickly look away
Like a newborn baby, it just happens everyday
I look inside myself and see my heart is black
I see my red door and must have it painted black
Maybe then I'll fade away and not have to face the facts
It's not easy facing up when your whole world is black
No more will my green sea go turn a deeper blue
I could not foresee this thing happening to you
If I look hard enough into the setting sun
My love will laugh with me before the morning comes
I see a red door and I want it painted black
No colours anymore, I want them to turn black
I see the girls walk by dressed in their summer clothes
I have to turn my head until my darkness goes
I wanna see it painted, painted black
Black as night, black as coal
I wanna see the sun blotted out from the sky
I wanna see it painted, painted, painted, painted black
Yeah
