A group of men driving an Audi sports car with no license plates fired nine rounds from a pistol into the Del Rey Hotel in San Jose, Costa Rica. A security guard was injured, and although the assailants attempted to flee were captured a short distance from the abandoned vehicle in Parque Okayama, which lies in an industrial zone between Desamparados and Curridabat.
Speculation is that the young men are locals that were declared persona non grata by the management after they got out of hand. It is expected that prosecutors will be aided by surveillance video from the hotel. Famous a destination for gentlemen travelers from the United States, affluent locals have been to known to patronize the Del Rey Hotel.
