The Mossos d'Esquadra have arrested a man accused of participating in the murder of Valentín Moreno, the perpetrator of the crime in Vila Olímpica in Barcelona in 2000. Moreno was shot in the head in the middle of the street in November of 2021, by several people who fled the scene on bicycles and scooters.

Catalan police on Wednesday arrested who they believe participated in and orchestrated the man's crime.

The agents also arrested his partner for giving him coverage, according to police sources.

After being handed over to the judge, prison was decreed only for the man, named Sergio.

The police suspect that behind the murder of Moreno there is a dispute over drug trafficking.

An enemy of Moreno, after a conflict over debts related to narcotics, allegedly commissioned the now detainee to execute him, fearing that he would not go after him.

Moreno was shot twice in the head from behind and fell to the ground, already mortally wounded, very close to the bar where he had breakfast every day, in Sant Adrià de Besòs (Barcelona), the municipality where he grew up and where he was feared for his criminal record, but also loved among his entourage where, among other things, he sponsored the local soccer team.

The analysis of the images, fingerprints and various clues led the police to the person now detained, whom they located at the scene of the crime, along with other suspects not detained.

Months after his death, there was still a bouquet of flowers and several flags from FC Barcelona, ​​the team he was a


with , at the place where he fell after being shot.

Moreno, however, did not die at the moment.

The health workers took him alive to the Can Ruti hospital, where he finally died.

Linked to drug trafficking, Moreno was known in the media after being convicted of the Vila Olímpica murder.

In April 2000, Moreno along with other youths kicked Javier Robledo Peña to death.

The night the events took place, Moreno was 18 years old and for that reason he was tried under the juvenile law.

He was sentenced to eight years of internment in a juvenile center and another three years of probation.

In 2010, Moreno made headlines again for leading a beating, with racist overtones, that his soccer team, Bada Bing, -a team where members of the Boixos Nois played- gave various soccer players of South American origin from the rival team Rosario Central.

Moreno and his brother were sentenced to six years in prison.

In 2017, in the emergency room of the Hospital del Mar in Barcelona, ​​Moreno attacked the hospital workers because they did not allow access to the area where her father was admitted.

It took half a dozen watchmen and workers to hold him back.

Several of the toilets presented various injuries.
