Memorial service for educator

Educators under attack?

A memorial service was held Sunday morning at the headquarters of the Sinaloa State Police (Policia Estatal Preventiva) for Officer Rafael Castillo Segoviano of the PEP’s Grupo Elite.

The police officer was murdered Friday night during an attack by unknown gunmen on a Grupo Elite patrol vehicle that had stopped at an Oxxo convenience store in the Pradera Dorada sector of Culiacan. Another police officer, a private security guard and a Universidad del Occidente professor were wounded by gunfire during the attack.

The professor of economics and business administration, Gustavo Oswaldo Lopez Reyes age 44, suffered a head wound and died of his injuries Saturday in a local hospital.

Culiacan’s academic community was in shock over the loss of their companion professor.

In the words of Aaron Sanchez, rector of the Universidad del Occidente, “This is a loss that hurts us deeply. This is a difficult, complex situation. Unfortunately we are living at a time when this can happen to any of us at any minute.”

Victor Antonio Corrales, rector at the Universidad Autonoma de Sinaloa, added, “What is happening to teachers outside of the university classrooms is lamentable. What we have is a situation where our citizens can no longer travel with any security, without the fear of being killed.”

The private security guard, who remains unidentified, is in critical condition and may not survive.

More than 100 rounds of AK-47 AND AR-15 ammunition were fired at the victims of the convenience store attack, according to the crime scene investigation.

Victor Antonio Corrales, rector at the Universidad Autonoma de Sinaloa, added, “
