Hitmen disguised as doctor and cop gun down prisoner being treated in hospital

Terrifying footage has emerged of two suspected hitmen, who disguised as a medic and a policeman, firing shots at a prisoner in front of shocked patients.

The pair – one dressed in a white doctor's coat and the other in a high-vis police jacket – were seen on CCTV cameras entering the Delfina Torres hospital in Esmeraldas, Ecuador on Sunday.

In the footage, they walk past the front desk and are led by a security guard to the room where prisoner Alex Lugo Saltos, 33, is being treated.

Saltos, who was serving a 26-year sentence for murder, was sent to the hospital for surgery after being shot in the back and the leg by his inmates, local media reports.

CCTV footage inside the hospital shows the two men pulling out their guns and pointing at a man who was sitting on a chair in the corridor, forcing him to lay down on the floor.

The suspects then look for Saltos and enter the room where they fired nine shots at their target, according to Extra.

Two nurses and a woman flee for their lives as the horror unfolds.

A police officer is also seen running to safety after the thugs apparently stole his gun.

The suspects escape the scene and leave the premises before the police arrested them later on the same day.

The pair were identified with the initials of L.A.G.P and J.E.S and are currently being held in custody.

According to official sources, J.E.S was arrested also in 2016 for homicide. L.A.G.P was arrested in 2015 for illegal weapons possession.

Police seized two submachine guns and a gun believed to be the one stolen from the police officer.

It is understood that the murder of the prisoner could be linked with a war between rival gangs Los Choneros and Los Lagartos.

The investigation is ongoing.
