The number of people killed and taken to the morgue of the National Coordination of Forensic Sciences in Caracas, Venezuela, hit 200 so far in February.

Last weekend, 38 people were reported killed. One of the casualties was identified as José Colón (48). His body was taken to the morgue in Caracas.

The victim's relatives informed that Colón was in his apartment on Sunday afternoon, in Petare, northeast Caracas, when someone rang the doorbell. As soon as Colón opened the door, he was repeatedly shot.

The medical team assisting him asserted that the man had died on his way to the hospital.

No one else was killed or injured. Colón's wife and two daughters were visiting a relative when the murder took place.

The victim was a social worker at the Mayor's Office of Sucre Municipality, northeast Caracas.
