Berendique said his daughter was shot early Saturday, while riding in a vehicle with her brother and another young man, when the trio ignored a command to stop by police at a checkpoint, fearing the officers might be robbers. The Prosecutor General's Office says in a statement that 11 police officers are under investigation for their roles in the death. Berendique's daughter is reported to have died after suffering three bullet wounds. (AP Photo/Fabiola Portillo)
