A murderer remains on the loose in Juarez, one day after two police officers and a teenage girl were shot near the U.S.-Mexico border.

It happened on Juarez Avenue Wednesday afternoon right near the Paso del Norte Bridge.

The officer who was killed has been identified as Victor Eduardo Angel Vargas.

Mexican authorities say Angel Vargas and a fellow traffic officer were shot by someone in a black honda, but the suspect or suspects managed to escape.

A bystander, 14 year-old Nayeli Morales Vargas was also shot in the back. She remains hospitalized today with a punctured lung.

The other police officer has not been identified. At last check he was in stable condition.
