    Default Drive By's in Puerto Plata

    FYI - there's been a series of drive by shootings which are most likely drug related. So far, no injuries that I'm aware of, but be(a)ware. It appears to be an after dark sport, so recommend sleeping away from windows and such.

    Do you know where in POP this has occurred?

    ??? I live in Puerto Plata and didn't hear anything about drive-by shootings?
    And I have a bar that is open until at least 12, some days until 2 or 3 am.... and didn't hear sirens or anything the last couple of weeks.

    Padre Granero. The usual motorcycle with two men.

    There's usually a group of young men that hang out on a corner which I think were the target, but I don't know how they could miss if they wanted to draw blood. Second time.

    Unfortunately, it's close to my casa but I'm not currently in country.

    Is this same 2 men the occupants of a very large motor cycle. 3 nights back, 2 men in sosau held up freinds with a gun near caribe tours. They rode a huge motor bike.

    Have you considered relocating?

    Take these morons to a gun range and teach them how to shoot. The sooner they kill each other off the world becomes a better place.

    With all due respect to the OP, and agreeing with Caonabo, as far as I know, the mentioned barrio is perhaps not the safest in POP, so writing that this is happening in POP without details is not the whole truth. I have to agree with BelgianMik above, we also live in POP and it's really normal, peaceful and quiet here.

    Oh, that's just terrible!

    Whenever I read those reports of drive by shootings I think "Another happy ending"
