TEXAS PLANS TO EXECUTE:
EDGAR TAMAYO, A Mexican national convicted in the 1994 shooting death of a Houston police officer who had been flagged down outside a nightclub by a man Tamayo had robbed minutes earlier. Officer Guy Gaddis arrested and handcuffed Tamayo and was driving him to the lockup when Tamayo pulled a pistol that had gone undetected. He shot Gaddis, fled, and was arrested nearby. Mexico has pleaded with Texas to delay Tamayo’s execution, saying an international treaty was violated when officers did not inform Tamayo of his right to contact the Mexican consulate and authorities failed to notify Mexico of the arrest.
