Before 24 hours had passed since the measure´s implementation, an armed confrontation between members of criminal gangs ended with at least three deaths.

According to an unofficial version of the authorities, the shootout was due to the fight for territory to control illicit activities.

The trigger for the emergency state was an explosion in the Cristo del Consuelo neighborhood, while the second incident occurred in Flor de Bastión.

Under this period, which will last 30 days, the exercise of freedom of association and assembly, the inviolability of the domicile and the inviolability of correspondence are suspended.
