A man identified as Wilmer Joseph Maestre, 19, accused of having raped and murdered three women in Caracas, has stricken again. Maestre shot a boy in a low-income sector in Caracas late on Tuesday.
Police sources confirmed that Maestre is hiding in the area, although some people said they spotted the suspect in other sectors.
A picture of Maestre has been disseminated via social networks after he killed two women on January 25.
The man tried to rape a boy, 15, on February 5, but after failing to do so, he brutally battered the victim.
In the latest attempt to plug the leaks to smuggling, Venezuela began nightly closures between 10 pm and 6 am of its official border crossings along the Colombian border.
