A Catholic priest in the southeastern Guatemalan province of Santa Rosa was fatally shot Friday after a road accident, authorities said.
The Rev. David Donis died of a gunshot to the chest, fire department spokesperson Lazaro Aguilar told radio stations.
Donis, 70, was the parish priest at La Sagrada Familia church in Oratorio, Santa Rosa.
The victim’s brother, Vicente Donis, who is the sacristan at the church, told reporters David was at the wheel when they collided with another vehicle while on the way to Guatemala City.
