Edgar Millan Gomez, the third highest-ranking member of Mexico’s public safety secretariat, was assassinated. The attack occurred as he arrived home from work and was in the process of entering his residence. When he turned on the interior lights, he was shot eight times by a lone gunman wearing latex gloves and armed with a suppressed pistol (possibly a .38-caliber weapon). Señor Gomez’s two bodyguards were also injured in the attack, but were quickly able to subdue the assassin.
