British tourist shot and killed in Buenos Aires robbery

British tourist shot and killed in Buenos Aires robberyA British tourist has been killed outside a five star hotel in Argentina in an attempted robbery. A 50-year-old man and his son, 28, were both shot as they tried to enter the luxury Hotel Faena, in the heart of Buenos Aires’ Puerto Madero district, emergency services said. They were intercepted by two men on a motorcycle who tried to rob them as they got out of a taxi, arriving at the hotel. The robbers, who had been circling the area, also had a support vehicle nearby. The two Brits attempted to resist the theft and were shot in the struggle, authorities said. Emergency services arrived within minutes and took both to local Argerich hospital. The father was shot in the armpit and suffered a haemorrage after the bullet entered his chest. He died of his wounds shortly afterwards. His son received a bullet to his left leg and is reportedly out of danger: the bullet missed his femoral artery. The perpetrators escaped after the attack and police were still searching for them on Saturday. The luxury Hotel Faena, where the shooting took place Local police have closed off the area and security footage from the scene is being analysed in order to identify the motorcycle and the route of escape. The hotel, which is party of the luxury Faena Group including a hotel in Miami, released a statement expressing "deepest condolences" and promising full support in the investigation. Armed robberies tend to rise at this time of year in Buenos Aires, when tourists flood to the city for the warmer months. In December last year, Swedish tourist Christoffer Persson was shot during an attempted robbery, and his leg subsequently amputated due to his injuries. In the same month, a US tourist was hospitalised after a violent assault during which his camera was stolen. Puerto Madero, where the murder took place, is the redeveloped former city docks, hailed as one of the most successful urban regeneration projects in the world, attracting huge foreign investment, young professionals, and luxury tourism.
