Carlos Guerro Rodriguez, chief of security for the city of Medellin, was assassinated by gunmen who fired into his jeep while he waited at a traffic light. And two more police officers were shot to death in that turbulent cocaine center. The killings appeared to signal a new surge in attacks on peace officers. Seven police officers, in addition to Guerro, were killed in 72 hours in or near the city.
