Gunmen kill Tijuana officer

July 14, 2009|Times Wire Reports

Gunmen opened fire on a police car, killing one officer and wounding three others.

Tijuana's drug war has seen at least 18 policemen slain so far this year.

State Atty. Gen. Rommel Moreno Manjarrez said he was creating a special investigative group to stem the attacks on police, which he said are part of an intimidation campaign by organized crime.

"Today, unfortunately, the criminals are trying to pressure authorities by killing police officers," Moreno said.
