A POLICE OFFICER who stopped a suspect in the streets of Sueca has been knifed to death and his assailant was shot by another officer last Tuesday.

The investigation started when an officer spotted a suitcase in the street very early that morning and when he opened the case he discovered the torso of an unidentified dismembered man riddled with stab wounds.

As officers searched for clues concerning this murder, one pair had suspicions about an individual who they spotted in the streets and when they went to talk to him, he drew a knife and stabbed the 51-year-old officer identified as deputy inspector Blas Gámez, piercing his heart.

The officer’s partner immediately drew his gun and fatally shot the killer who was reportedly of South American origin then called the emergency services but they were unable to resuscitate the officer who was declared dead at the site of the attack.

Officers then cordoned off the street and entered a nearby apartment thought to belong to the killer.

Representatives of the regional and national government have attended to pass on their respects and messages of sympathy for the officer and his family have been posted on social media by the National Police and Guardia Civil.
