An agent of the Military Police of Public Order (PMOP) was assassinated last night inside the Támara National Penitentiary Center, as reported by the authorities.
So far, it is known that victim was identified as Pedro López Mejia (26), originally from the municipality of Santa Elena in La Paz.
This was murdered presumably by a prisoner, who used a padlock to attack the agent and end his life, after several blows.
According to the report, the victim was bringing food to the inmate when the violent act occurred. The agent was assigned to the fifth battalion of the Military police.
The body of the now deceased was transferred to the General Directorate of Forensic Medicine of Tegucigalpa, capital of Honduras.
