Police officer killed in anti-Maduro protests in Venezuela: prosecutors

FRIDAY, July 28, 2017

CARACAS - A police officer was killed by a gunshot wound to the head during protests against embattled Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro that were part of a nationwide two-day strike, prosecutors said Friday.

The cop was shot on Thursday in the town of Ejido in the northwest of the country as the strike drew to a close. The fatal shooting brought the death toll from four months of violent anti-Maduro protests to 113.
