Former Peruvian president Alan Garcia

Former Peruvian president Alan Garcia has shot himself moments before police arrived at his home. He was being arrested on account of bribery claims. A judicial order was earlier issued for the arrest of the former president.

Officers rushed the two-time president of Peru to Casimiro Ulloa hospital in the capital city of Lima. According to police and media reports, Alan Gracia remains in a critical condition.

Alan Garcia has served as the president Peru twice, first from 1985 to 1990 and then again from 2006 to 2011.
