The deaths took place in different locations of Santiago. So far, 31 deaths have been registered since Oct. 18 when demonstrations began against the measures promoted by the current neoliberal government.
The first death was Jorge Mora which resulted from the police's negligence as he was hit by a police truck outside the Monumental Stadium after the match between local football clubs Colo Colo and Palestino.
According to the official version, the officer driving the truck was attacked outside the sports complex so he did not notice hitting the man. However, witnesses indicate that the truck was speeding up and killed Mora in a “hit and run.”
The officer was charged for the killing and was prosecuted for "negligent conduct."

Police fired a tear gas canister directly into the head of a man who was being interviewed by a British media correspondent in Providencia.
On the other hand, the looting of a Cruz Verde pharmacy, located in Santiago, was registered. At the site, a security guard stabbed a person who was apparently participating in the crime.
In addition, the death of 24-year-old, Ariel Moreno, who was rushed to the hospital in critical condition after being hit in the head, was confirmed during demonstrations in the Padre Hurtado commune. Moreno was injured as he was part of a protest in honor of Mora.
