According to a video obtained from the C4 cameras of the Cuautitlán Izcalli City Council Security Police Station, Mexican actor Octavio Ocaña, known as “Benito Ríos” in the series ‘Vecinos’, fled from a police patrol from Bosques del Lago to the Chamapa-Lechería road.

In the video that lasts 2 minutes 51 seconds, the gray Jeep van that the actor in the television program “Vecinos” (“Neighbors”) was driving can be seen on Morelos Avenue. He was with two other men, who remain in police custody while investigations are carried out.

The 2014 van has an open sunroof. At minute 1:04 you can see how he tries to overtake several cars, at least one gray Tsuru, and in one part of the road, he even raises dust when accelerating, when he crosses in front of José María Morelos and Fernando Márquez. At minute 1:17 a patrol car is behind the vehicle driven by 22-year-old Octavio.

The municipal security unit turns on the siren and at 1:40 minutes it manages to overtake a public transport bus, already on Lago de Guadalupe. At minute 2:31 it is observed that in one of the roundabouts, Octavio, who is driving the Jeep, is hit by a van. You can see that damage on the driver’s door on the left side, coming from the Vienna Woods road.

Despite the impact with the van, Benito, as the actor was known, does not stop, instead he accelerates, while the patrol car behind cannot catch up with him. Presumably, minutes later the actor is hit on the Chamapa – Lechería road, it was then when, according to a statement from the Attorney General’s Office of Mexico and the city of Cuautitlán Izcalli, the firearm the actor held in his right hand was detonated, inflicting a bullet wound to his cheek and leaving his right side bloody.

In turn, journalist Carlos Jiménez shared one version of the events on social media writing: “The shot entered the right cheekbone, exited through the left parietal and got stuck on the ceiling.” The actor died of a gunshot wound to the head, inside his car, in which he was traveling accompanied by two people, and which was hit on the side after a pursuit by municipal policemen of Cuautitlán Izcalli, because the young man did not want to stop, according to the investigation of the Attorney General’s Office of the State of Mexico (FGJEM).

However, the circumstances of the death of the actor who as a child played “Benito Ríos” in the television series Vecinos, have caused controversy, since videos in which municipal officers can be seen surrounding the van, going through it without gloves, even going inside, while the victim, with blood on his face, is still alive and moves his hand, have been leaked.

The first versions indicated that the actor from Vecinos had been the victim of a crime while he was driving along the Chamapa-Lechería road, in Atizapán; another version said that municipal authorities collided with the actor’s car, prior to finding him injured, versions that were not confirmed by the FGJEM and the municipal government.

According to the the prosecutor’s office and the Cuautitlán Izcalli city council, it was an incident in which the actor himself mistakenly discharged the weapon. For its part, the FGJEM reported that, according to the statements of the young man’s two companions, presented to the Public Ministry, the actor was driving while intoxicated in the municipality of Cuautitlán Izcalli when municipal police stopped them because he was driving erratically; however, he sped up and tried to flee.

The institution pointed out that according to the stories of the two men traveling with him, the Vecinos actor carried a 380 caliber weapon in the glove compartment of the gray Jeep van, that he took it out during his escape and it discharged when he checked the cartridge, leaving a shot in the unit canopy. Immediately after, Octavio Ocaña crashed into a mound on Chamapa-Lechería road, at which point the gun in his hand discharged, injuring him in the head.

Regarding the events, the Cuautitlán Izcalli police said in a statement that they received a report that people with a weapon were traveling in a gray Jeep-type van, a unit that they identified through the C4 cameras.

When a patrol car stopped him, the driver, Octavio, accelerated to flee, leading to a chase until he reached the highway, where finally the actor crashed and was found with a firearm in his hand, as well as a bullet to the head that had entered through his chin; however, he was still alive.

Immediately, the police said, they requested the support of the Civil Protection emergency units, who administered first-aid to the Vecinos actor and transferred him to the Lomas Verdes hospital, where he later died. The city council pointed out that the actor’s companions were transferred and made available to the Public Ministry, where an investigation was started to determine responsibility, where they remained until the last hours of Saturday.

While the communiqués and versions from the authority were being prepared, several videos were disseminated on social media about the incident, which contributed to speculation and criticism of police actions in the case. One shows a municipal policeman without gloves going through the scene; he enters the car and interacts with the actor, his right hand is bloody and part of his head is covered by a cap.

A man is seen outside, threatened by another municipal policeman, with handcuffs on and one leg immobilized. Meanwhile there are other officials flagging the area. A second video shows the chase recorded by the C4 cameras, identifying Octavio’s erratic driving at high speed.

It is possible to see how the car accelerates, tries to overtake several public transport units and crashes into a truck; it increases speed, and even crashes into other units and objects. The video begins in Bosques del Lago, where the house of the Vecinos actor is allegedly located, and ends in Atizapán, although it is not possible to see the moment of impact of the vehicle.
