This horrific crime happened yesterday on March 10, 2013 at around 10pm in the town of Junin in Argentina. 17 year old girl identified as Karen Daiana Campos was shot dead by an armed robber while working a kiosk named “Carlitos” in the Villa Belgrano area. The hooded robber demanded money and although the girl handed it all to him without offering any form of resistance, he shot her in the chest before fleeing on a motorcycle.

Yesterday at about 10 pm, my home town (Junin, Argentina) was devastated. Karen, a 17 year old friend of mine, was shot in the chest while working in a convenience store. The bullet entered her chest, a few inches away from her heart, she was still conscious when she fell to the floor. A guy with a black coat, and a hoodie entered the store and told her to give him the money – she did, but before leaving the store, he shot her.
What really pissed of the neighbors is that the police station is just half a block from where this happened – on the same street. While she was bleeding out on the floor, the police took 15 minutes to arrive, the ambulance took 20 minutes. She was sent to undertake immediate emergency surgery, but died an hour later.
When we found out about her death, (I was there with some friends) everyone started wrecking the police station, and incinerating police cars. The plaza was filled with over 200 people, and Molotov’s flew all around us. GAD special forces, tried to restore order, but they left half hour later because more people kept coming. It was really chaotic, it really pisses me off.
What I read today on the web is that they are willing to pay 50.000 Pesos to anyone that can provide information that may lead to the arrest of the shooter.
RIP Karen “Karo” Campos. Too young to die like that. The life has not even started for her at 17.
Here are a few videos of riots in Junin after the murder:
