GERARDO DANIEL INSÚA
The commissioner of General Supervision of the State Public Security Secretariat, Gerardo Insúa Casaón, was murdered this Saturday night in the Real del Valle de Tlajomulco de Zúñiga subdivision.
The events occurred on the streets Valle de San Victor and Valle de San Valentin, in the aforementioned subdivision shortly after 9:00 pm.
The state commissioner went to the site with family members and was outside a store when he was approached by several armed men, who attacked him directly.
Upon arrival of the various emergency services, including paramedics, they confirmed the death of the victim, who had several gunshot wounds.

Municipal police officers proceeded to cordon off the scene and requested the command and handling of the case to the Public Prosecutor’s Office.

So far, the State Prosecutor’s Office did not report any arrests, although an operation between state, municipal and federal authorities was deployed to find those responsible.

This is the fourth police officer killed so far this year in Jalisco; in 2023, there were a total of 24 officers, including municipal, state and federal officers killed in the state, ranking fifth in the country, according to Causa en Común.
