Dominican police officer fatally shot by colleague during dispute at cash machine

SANTO DOMINGO — Authorities in the Dominican  Republic say a policeman has been shot to death by a fellow officer in  apparent dispute over use of a cash machine on payday.

Preliminary police reports say Lt. Bernardo Montero is dead from  a bullet allegedly fired by Sgt. Yuder de los Santo during a heated  argument Tuesday at a bank ATM. The sergeant was wounded. Some witnesses report that the dispute started when Montero bypassed a  line of customers at Banreservas. That is a state bank where police,  military and other public employees receive their wages.

Police Chief Jose Armando Polanco has ordered a special investigation to determine exactly what happened.
