An official police spokesman Edgardo Barahona, said it is unknown at this time just how many gunmen were involved in the attack as witness accounts vary, but all agreed that at least three of the known five attackers were wearing police uniforms and bullet-proof vests at the time of the attack. Witnesses said the men entered the entered the establishment but did not say anything, they just opened fire on the occupants in Saturday’s attack. The incident took place in what has become Tegucigalpa’s most violent neighborhood, the notorious, northern 1 de Diciembre area. Police said that the victims of the attack ranged in age from 19 to 30.
