Mexican Cartel: Police Officer Who Arrested El Chapo's Son Shot 150 Times In Broad Daylight
A Mexican police officer who was involved in arresting the son of jailed Mexican cartel drug lord, Joaquin 'El Chapo' Guzman has been assassinated in a broad daylight execution.
Sources says the dead officer identified as Eduardo 'N,' 32, was a high-level officer with Sinalo's State Preventive Police. He was murdered on Wednesday morning when two armed men with semiautomatic rifles climbed out of a red car and opened fire at a white Nissan four-door sedan.
The brutal execution was captured on closed-circuit television cameras.
According to Infobae.com, the ambush took less than 30 seconds as the gunmen fired at least 150 bullets into the white vehicle.
It was reported that the red car carrying armed men had followed the white car into the parking lot of a shopping center in Culiacán, where they murdered the officer.
The officer was involved in the October 17 arrest of Ovidio Guzmán López, the son of Sinaloa cartel boss Joaquín 'El Chapo' Guzmán. Ovidio was later released after his cartel's gunmen exchanged gun battle with the Mexican security forces to force his release.
