The man who was seriously injured last Tuesday in a fight in the Plaza de Catalunya in Barcelona has finally died this Thursday in the hospital where he was admitted, sources from the Mossos d'Esquadra have reported.
The fatal event took place around ten o'clock at night last Tuesday, the 5th. For reasons that the Generalitat Police are investigating, two men got into a dispute around the central square of the Barcelona capital. The victim, as a result of that fight, was seriously injured and an ambulance from the Medical Emergency System (SEM) took her to a hospital in Barcelona. The victim was admitted to the hospital but despite the efforts of the paramedics, nothing could be done to save his life. The man died yesterday Thursday in the same hospital. The Mossos d'Esquadra have opened an investigation for homicide and the agents are awaiting the results of the autopsy to determine whether the injuries caused in the fight are what caused the death of the victim.
The case is now under summary secrecy and it is the homicide agents of the Criminal Investigation Area (AIC) of the Barcelona police region who have taken charge of the investigation. An investigation that does not seem complicated since the same night that the events took place, the alleged aggressor was arrested by the Barcelona Urban Police. In fact, the local police arrested him thanks to the fact that a National Police agent, who was off duty, witnessed the events and detained the aggressor until a Urban Police patrol arrived at the scene. who ended up arresting the main suspect.
The Central Investigation Division (DIC) of the Mossos did not begin to investigate the events until Wednesday when the hospital alerted the Generalitat Police of the seriousness of the events. The aggressor has no criminal record and agents are now investigating what caused the brutal fight between the two individuals. Sources close to the case assure that the victim and aggressor are regulars around Plaza Cataluña. The investigation remains open until what happened is clarified and it is determined what happened last Tuesday and who is to blame for the death.
