Mexico City, Mexico — Four people related to the shooting that occurred in the streets near Terminal 2 of the Mexico City International Airport (AICM) were arrested Sunday.

The Secretaría de Seguridad Ciudadana (SSC) of the capital, Omar Garcia Harfuch, posted the news of the successful arrests on social media.

“In relation to the attack on a person at the AICM last Friday, today @SEMAR_mx , @FiscaliaCDMX and @SSC_CDMX secured 4 people, two of them directly responsible for the attack on the victims at the airport,” he said.

The Secretariat of Citizen Security (SSC), in coordination with the Secretariat of the Navy of Mexico, carried out various investigations through the analysis of the video surveillance cameras after the attack against an SUV that left two injured and the shooter, dead.

The SSP said explained “Following up on lines of investigation, personnel from the Secretariat of Citizen Security (SSC) and the Attorney General’s Office of Mexico City, in coordination with the Secretary of the Navy (SEMAR), executed three search warrants in homes located in the Benito Juárez, Cuauhtémoc and Iztacalco mayoralties, where two women and two men, ages 21, 27, 22 and 30, were detained, possible members of a criminal group linked to the attack that occurred on October 15, in the surroundings of Terminal 2 of the AICM.”
