CDMX Police Chief back on duty one month after the attack


MEXICO CITY (AP) — Mexico City’s police chief has returned full-time to work one month after a brazen attack left him with three bullet wounds and his two bodyguards and a bystander dead.

Omar García Harfuch appeared with Mayor Claudia Sheinbaum at a news conference Tuesday wearing a suit and a brace on his right arm. He returned to work full time Monday.

On June 26, some two dozen gunmen ambushed García’s armored vehicle before dawn on one of the capital’s main boulevards. That same day, García signaled from the hospital that the Jalisco New Generation Cartel was responsible.

On Tuesday, García upheld that assertion, saying it was based on an investigation that had been underway since last August.
