SAN JUAN, Puerto Rico (AP) - A 32-year-old man from Florida was shot to death early Monday in a popular tourist district of Puerto Rico’s capital, police said.

Authorities said Richard McDonald Diaz was getting into his car with his girlfriend early Monday when he was killed before dawn in a drug store parking lot in Condado. Police say 26-year-old Meralis Calderon Rivera also was shot and is hospitalized.

Authorities said it is unclear what led to the shooting, but noted that McDonald had been accused of first-degree murder in a 2013 double killing in Puerto Rico. The charges were dropped, however.

Police said the unidentified gunman Monday was wearing a mask and did not say anything.

Police said the couple had recently moved to Kissimmee, Florida.
