An armed man opened fire inside Venezuela's central bank earlier today. He wounded two people and was shot dead, sources at the institution said, according to Reuters.
"The attacker, a young guy, came in with a briefcase and fired shots and said he had a bomb," said one bank employee, who added two people had been injured.
"He went up to the second floor where the macroeconomic accounts are and he was shot down there."
The central bank said on Twitter an "irregular situation" in the institution's financial tower had been controlled.
The socialist economic collapse that is destroying the country continues. People are desperate.
