Paola Andreína Ramírez Gómez (26 July 1993 – 19 April 2017) was a Venezuelan student from the Catholic University of Tachira killed during the 2017 Venezuelan protests.
On 19 April 2017, Paola was near the Las Palomas Square in the San Carlos neighborhood of San Cristóbal, Táchira state, when she was intercepted by several armed civilians on motorcycles that were patrolling the area due to the demonstrations that were taking place in the area.
They tried to strip her of her belongings and when she ran away she was hit by a projectile that pierced her lungs.
On 21 April, during her funeral, her parents were taken by the CICPC forensic police and interrogated following their comments that she had called them minutes before her death stating that colectivos were pursuing her. Their testimony contrasted Interior Minister Néstor Reverol's statement, who said that a member of an opposition party killed Ramírez.
Ramírez's death was documented in a report by a panel of independent experts from the Organization of American States, considering that it could constitute a crime against humanity committed in Venezuela along with other killings during the protests.
