An explosion caused by a grenade thrown by a man and a woman to a nightclub in the municipality of Caucasia, in northwestern Colombia, has left at least 31 people injured, according to official sources, informed Infobae.

The attack perpetrated by the two individuals who have already been captured caused chaos in the club where many young people from Antioquia were having a good time. According to Caracol Radio, the mayor of Caucasia, Óscar Aníbal Suárez, said of the 31 young people injured there are 11 serious, assuring that there are already nine people who remain stable. And one person, possibly a woman, remains in intensive care, the mayor explained.

The detonation wounded several people, while others were affected by the stampede that broke out in the middle of the emergency. Suarez said one of the attackers is a 23-year-old assassin who was, "lately, making the attacks" in that municipality and accused of belonging to a group of assassins operating in the area. And the woman allegedly handed the grenade to the subject.

Later, both were identified as "Tilico," chief hitman in Caucasia and "Juliana" who was in charge of the logistics of the Clan del Golfo (Gulf Clan) in the region. "It seems that it's extortion, it's the information we have now for the investigation," Suárez said. 

Caracol Radio also reported that the authorities conducted six raids, seizing the motorcycle where they had arrived and fled the scene, a firearm Piero Beretta, a B38 revolver and ammunition.

The Antioquia Police revealed that the Gulf Clan attacked the nightclub because the owner refused to pay extortion.
