Former Cancun police shot, killed watching television

Cancun, Q.R. — An ex-Cancun police officer was shot and killed in his home Friday as he sat watching television.

According to preliminary reports, the former municipal policeman was shot at least three times while sitting in a chair in his home watching television. Unverified reports say the victim was former municipal police José N, who was discharged from the corporation four years ago.

Investigators indicated that the shooting could be a drug-related matter since the former police officer was allegedly involved in the buying and selling of narcotics.

Witnesses reported seeing a parked vehicle from which a lone subject emerged where he entered the home and shot the former officer before fleeing the scene.

Arrests have yet to be made.
