German national dies in shootout with Dominican police in La Mulata, Sosua
( - A German citizen was killed and three police officers wounded Wednesday in a gunbattle in the northern coastal town of Sosua, Dominican authorities said.


The fatality, identified as Peter Demetrick, was wearing a bulletproof vest and shot at police and prosecutors when they arrived at a residence in the La Mulata III development to conduct a court-ordered search.

Demetrick and several other foreign nationals arrested after the shootout were part of "a violent group that operates in Europe," police said in a statement.

Police and prosecutors went to the residence at 8:30 a.m. to search for weapons, but were greeted by gunfire and "found themselves obliged to repel the aggression," according to the statement.

Demetrick and three cops were wounded and the German subsequently died while being treated at a hospital.

Once inside the residence, police found an arms cache that included two U.S. military M-16 combat rifles, hundreds of rounds of ammunition and seven more bulletproof vests.

The occupants of the home also had an armored vehicle, police said

Lethal shootout between burglars and Police in La Mulata Sosua

Thursday afternoon (10′th, Nov, 2011), a La Mulata resident called Police when she noticed burglars attempting to break into a neighbors place in Villas Karibik. When Police arrived a shoot-out took place and both young Santiago men were shot dead. A terrible sight for by-passers and school children, however most residents in the area feel safer now that there are 2 less armed scumbags coming around looting and traumatizing everyone, as several properties in the area have been subject to burglary’s lately.

And there are many more stories about murders in La Mulata, just search the interent...


Dominican Watchdog Note: OK maybe these Germans turned a little extreme, but in reality it was a Neighbor protection program in one of the most dangerous residencial areas of Sosua, which ended with police confrontation - In fact the Police has been slow to protect foreigners living in La Mulata, resulting in many robberies and murders. Ask any realtor on the North Coast, for years it was almost impossible to sell properties in that part of Sosua!!!
