Senator To Meet With Mexican Ambassador Concerning Suspected Cop Killer

U.S. Senator Wayne Allard will meet with the Mexican Ambassador to the United States to discuss the extradition of a suspected Denver cop killer. The meeting will take place Monday In Washington, D.C.. The republican senator from Colorado is scheduled to meet with Carlos De Icaza concerning 19-year-old Raul Garcia-Gomez. He's awaiting extradition to Denver where the District Attorney has agreed to charge him with second-degree murder and attempted first-degree murder. Mexico will not allow extradition if the penalty for a crime is death or life imprisonment. In a statement released Sunday Allard said "justice can only be served if this individual stands trial in Colorado," he says "I'm optimistic that the ambassador will understand the gravity of this case and intervene with his government." Meanwhile, the autopsy on Detective Donald Young, the officer Gomez-Garcia is accused of killing, is complete. It shows Young was shot three times, once in the head and twice in the left side of his body. Young and another officer John Bishop were in uniform providing security for a private party in Denver when both were shot at in the early morning hours on May 8th. Bishop survived the shooting.
