Simon Saul Estrada Luevano, acting chief guard at the city’s prison, was killed on his day off while at home with his family Saturday night. An armed gang broke into his home and shot him 30 times. The 36-year-old had only recently been appointed to his post.
Less than 12 hours later, police officer Roberto Carlos Maldonado Ruiz, 38, was ambushed by armed men as he travelled home, after leaving a police station where he was in charge of the night shift. After being shot several times, his vehicle crashed into a concrete wall and he died at the scene."
