A MOTHER has allegedly been shot dead by a security guard after a furious row in which she accused him of kissing and sexually harassing her 13-year-old daughter.
The 57-year-old suspect, who denied the kiss took place, reportedly shot the victim after a furious row in a Buenos Aires shopping centre on 3rd January.
The incident took place outside a store called La Familia, which was owned by the 41-year-old victim, mother-of-four Maria.
The accused worked as a security guard at the shopping centre in Las Cabras, in the eastern Argentine province of Buenos Aires.
The alleged killer, 57-year-old Gustavo Sesan, allegedly argued with the victim over the accusation that he had kissed her underage daughter on the mouth.
The row erupted after Maria warned Sesan that she would report him to the cops for “harrassing” the 13-year-old, according to reports from local newspaper Clarin.
Sesan reportedly pulled out a gun in the middle of the argument and shot the woman in the neck, in front of her older, 17-year-old daughter.
Sesan was stopped by the victim’s husband after the attack. Zeccini and other shop workers struggled with the accused until the police arrived.
According to newspaper Infobae, witnesses called the emergency services. When they arrived at the scene they could only confirm the mother’s death.
Prosecutor Leandro Arevalo told Infobae that the argument between the security guard and the victim might be “linked to sexual harassment, but nothing is confirmed”.
According to local media, the accused has been remanded in custody on charges of murder.
The victim’s 13-year-old daughter, who is one of four children, is to be quizzed by the cops about the alleged sex attack.
The investigation is ongoing.
