Mexico claims capture of ‘cop-killing’ rogue officer


MEXICO CITY — Mexican authorities say they’ve captured one of three rogue federal police officers who allegedly took part in a June 25 shootout that killed three of their colleagues at Mexico City’s international airport.

Federal Police regional security chief Luis Cardenas Palomino says suspect Bogard Felipe Lugo de Leon was caught at a Mexico City apartment after police received a tip.

Cardenas Palomino says Lugo de Leon confirmed that one of the two officers who opened fire on their colleagues was about to be handcuffed for purportedly trafficking drugs through the terminal.

He says the bust was not pre-planned, but occurred when one of the rogue officers was caught in the act.
