Two state police officers were gunned down this weekend in the central Mexican state of Puebla when they stopped a vehicle whose occupants were suspected of fuel theft, state prosecutors said. The officers were killed early Saturday near the city of Huejotzingo, the Puebla Attorney General’s Office said.
“The officers stopped subjects who had stolen an SUV and kidnapped the driver,” the AG’s office said in a Twitter post.
The state police officers “were surprised by more individuals, who opened fire on them,” the AG’s office said. The assailants were caught a short distance from an illegal fuel tap, “explaining why they responded with violence,” the AG’s office said. The officers were shot in the head, media reports said.
