This is the moment six thugs fire their guns at a burning car they set alight because the driver would not pay their extortionate fee to use the road.
The incident took place in the city of Itagui in the northern Colombian department of Antioquia following an argument between a driver who reportedly offers “informal” transportation services for locals and a gang forcing motorists to pay a fee.
According to reports, the row escalated and the motorist’s vehicle was burned and riddled with bullets by the gang after he had abandoned it.
