Investigators believe that the assailant responsible for the violent attack against Senator Ana Gabriela Guevara on Sunday while driving a motorcycle on a federal highway may be a police officer who lives in Mexico City and who was either off duty or inactive at the time of the crime.

According to EL UNIVERSAL's sources, the Attorney General's Office have identified a suspect.

However, due to the ongoing investigation, our source wasn't able to disclose the identity of or provide more details about the suspected police officer or the group of people who were with him at the time of the attack.

As part of the investigation, the Attorney General has requested surveillance footage from the State of Mexico's Citizens Security Commission, which may have captured the exact moment of the crime.
