Authorities in Mexico say a state police officer reportedly shot and killed a fellow cop in Monterrey, Nuevo Leon for refusing to rob and rape a woman. The suspect lashed out in anger at his partner’s refusal to carry out the crime in Apodaca.

Law enforcement agencies have continued a manhunt for Sergio de la Rosa Pulido, a 33-year-old police officer with the Fuerza Civil Force, who is currently wanted on rape and murder charges. Police have searched his home and businesses he used to frequent.

The Public Safety Secretary for Nuevo Leon, Cuauhtemoc Antúnez, confirmed the investigation and hunt for one of his cops with Fuerza Civil Force. The elite combat group consists of state police officers are highly trained to handle high impact criminal activity such as cartel gun battles and kidnappings, which have spread like wildfire through the border state.

Sources familiar with the investigation told Breitbart Texas the police officer had been purchasing beers when he wanted 26-year-old Marco Fragoso Caro, to assist him with robbing a woman so he could buy more beer and then sexually assault her.

When Fragoso declined to help him, De la Rosa reportedly fired straight into the victim’s chest with an illegally owned firearm. Unlike in the United States, weapons are stringently restricted in Mexico, making it near impossible for an average civilian to own and carry a gun for self-defense purposes.

Although authorities have not confirmed the details of the illegal firearm, Breitbart Texas reported that the weapon was a .357 Magnum handgun.

After slaying his partner, De la Rosa took the woman at gunpoint as he forced her into her car. The woman was able to flee but not before the law enforcement official raped her.

The victim reported the incident, setting off a massive deployment of police officers that led to the discovery of the murder victim. Authorities initiated a rape investigation and launched a manhunt for De la Rosa. The wanted man was able to flee the scene and remains at large.

Officials say De la Rosa was previously accused of rape back in December. However, charges were not pursued because of a lack of evidence, and the case never went before a judge.
