•, By Jamie Micklethwaite

An elite police officer who was part of the operation to arrest the son of El Chapo has been brutally murdered after two men shot him more than 150 times.

Ovidio Guzman, the son of the drug lord, was briefly captured by Mexican police, triggering a shocking gunfight in the streets.

Authorities were later forced to release Guzman , who is believed to have followed his dad into the drugs trade, to avoid further bloodshed.

One of the elite police officers involved in the operation has been gunned down outside a shopping centre.
