Since we have been studying Passive Voice, our teacher Pilar asked us to look for a news of a crime and to find passive forms and vocabulary connected to crimes.
Here’s mine. I took it from “Buenos Aires Herald”
Police chief shot dead in Rosario
A police chief from the Rosario Police Force was shot dead yesterday in the centre of the Santa province city as he attempted to defend his son’s business from thieves.
Superintendent Guillermo Morgans, head of the Special Units Group (AUE) of Rosario, was shot twice during the attack, according to court sources, who said police were searching for two suspects.
“His (Morgans’) son reported that two men entered the store, armed. They wanted to take money, tied him (the son) up and when the policemen tried to step back, a struggle began, ending in the death of Morgans,” Santa Fe province’s prosecutor-general Jorge Baclini told reporters.
The incident took place on 200 Rodríguez street at around 3.30pm inside a branch of the Pago Fácil bill payment firm. It was being managed at the time by Morgans’ son, whose colleagues told police yesterday that alleged thieves took around 500 pesos.
According to the prosecutor handling the case, Florentino Malaponte, “multiple shots” were fired at the policeman, one of which he received in the face.
They said Morgans had arrived to the store moments before the attack in a truck and had tried to defend himself with his weapon.
“He had shot at them in self- defence,” Malaponte said at the crime scene, where he was accompanied by Santa Fe provincial Security Secretary Matías Drivet, Rosario Police Chief José Luis Amaya and Baclini.
In his role, Morgans was in charge of the investigative areas of car theft, special laws, investigations and personal safety.
