Oscar Valenzuela, a 35 years old police officer with the municipal police stationed at Benito Juárez was killed last night in Ciudad Juarez .
Valenzuela was at home on his day off when an armed commando came looking for him. The officer saw the commando and managed to escape through the back of the home but was chased for several blocks until they caught him in a local hardware store and tire shop called "Crazy" located on the streets Ramón Rayón and Clifton en Praderas de Sur a few meters from the Santiago Troncoso.
The victim sought refuge inside the business with attempts to outwit his assailants, but unfortunately it did not. He was located inside by the sicarios and was executed while terrified customers looked on.
The place where he was executed is just a few blocks away from his apartment and it didn't take long for family members to arrive, where they found their loved one without life.
