Miguel Marcelo Yadón was shot five times

Olivares was hit by three bullets and died in hospital on Sunday.

"Yadón was the murder target and our hypothesis is that it was a personal attack," said Patricia Bullrich, Minister of Public Security.

Local media reported that all detainees allegedly belonged to the same criminal gang.

They also said that the motive for the killing could have been an alleged relationship that Mr. Yadón had with the daughter of one of the suspects.

Argentine President Mauricio Macri mourned Mr Olivares, whom he calls a hard-working, popular and upstanding man, for two days.
