Suspect: Texas officer was killed after 'mistreating' inmates

Lookout suspect says the Texas correctional officer had been 'hunted' by the Mexican gang


El Paso Times

EL PASO, Texas — A former Barrio Azteca gang member from El Paso suspected of being involved in the killing of three people tied to the U.S Consulate in Juarez claimed the target of the attack was a detention officer who mistreated gang members at the El Paso County Jail.

Mexican authorities on Tuesday accused Ricardo "Chino" Valles de la Rosa, 45, of being a lookout for gunmen who carried out the hit. Valles was arrested Friday by the Mexican army in Juarez and remains in custody in Mexico.
