Pánuco street in the Camino Verde neighborhood. 
According to the police report, Pérez was walking on the sidewalk, and
when he saw the uniformed men approach, “he suddenly moved, with his right
hand, from the front of his waist, to what appeared to be a firearm”, but when
the agents gave him the order to throw it to the ground,“ El Nier ” cooperated.

Later, he was arrested for
possession of a 9-millimeter caliber weapon.

The authorities reported that the
person arrested is responsible for the wave of violence in that area of
​​the city.  He was transferred to the premises of the
Attorney General’s Office for disposal, where his legal situation will be

different but close points, with junctions between Sánchez Taboada avenue and
Agricultores, and October 2nd and Cruz del Sur streets, they left the remains
