Police and members of a drug gang clashed in Colombia's Medellin. At least one person was killed in the shootout.
A dramatic shootout took place in a neighborhood in Colombia's Medellin on Tuesday.
Police had tried to arrest 11 members of a drug ring in the Limonar neighborhood when shooting between the two sides broke out.
One woman was killed. Police say she was a gang member.
But police have yet to determine if the bullet that killed the woman came from police weapons.
[General Yesid Vasquez, Chief of Medellin's Metropolitan Police]:
"There are shots in various places but I think the best test in this situation is the bullet that the doctor has. We can look at it and establish if it is from a rifle. The police don't have rifles at the moment."
A journalist and a policeman were also injured.
Locals say the police handled the situation badly and the violence put them in danger.
