Man fatally shot at popular Puerto Rico festival

Police say a 32-year-old man has been fatally shot in front of hundreds of onlookers at a street festival in the colonial district of Puerto Rico's capital.
Police say Julio Ramos Oliver was standing with friends in a packed plaza in Old San Juan early Sunday when a gunman approached him and shot him twice in the head. A doctor pronounced him dead at the scene.
The plaza was thronged with tourists and locals celebrating the San Sebastian Street Festival, a raucous four-day gathering in a historic area with brightly colored Spanish colonial buildings.
The shooting sent horrified onlookers scurrying for safety.
Police are reviewing videotapes from security cameras. There have been no arrests.
Ramos was from a seaside suburb of San Juan.
