He was shot through the Jetta’s window minutes before 8 am.

The attackers mocked the policemen who persecuted them as they fled after the attack due to a high number of police vehicles that pursued them, although an operation has been maintained so far for their location.
Relatives of the deceased entered into crisis on the site and expressed that Erasmus had been deprived of life for the leakage of information from the analysis system of the corporation.
Mayor Antonio Trejo lamented the death of Fuentes Damián, who had eleven years of service in the corporation , and asked the authorities, the State Attorney General, to clarify the murder as soon as possible and asked those responsible to be punished with the full weight of the law.
