So I’ve been googling the city of Santa Maria in Colombia.... couldn’t find any. Could it be a typo for Santa Marta ?

I Got it right. All Lebanese news outlets such as LBC and the others are wrong (fake news :p ). So the city is Santa Marta , you can see many more pictures in the Colombian newspaper

For those who don’t understand Spanish, he was in his toyota pickup truck when several assassins riding motorcycles (exactly like Amal/Hizbala) fired strays of bullets at him. His mother’s family, Colombian natives, are powerful people there.

Update, there’s a 30 million USD bounty for anyone who could supply names that will lead to the arrest of the culprits and those who ordered the hit.
