Photos: The Tokyo Olympics Moments We Won���t Forget

Surveillance video footage shows the tragic moment Olympic sprinter Álex Quiñónez, 32, and rapper Christopher Arcalla, 24, were executed on a street in Ecuador last week.

Quiñónez and Arcalla were standing with a group of people when two gunmen stepped out of a SUV in the Guayaquil town of Colinas de la Florida on Friday night.

The security camera footage shows a group of men, including Quiñónez, fleeing from the gunmen before one of the assailants opens fired at point-blank range and strikes the Olympian.

The gunman’s accomplice can be seen in the background pointing his weapon at a defenseless Arcalla; he shot him 15 times, police say.

On video, it appeared as if the gunman continues to fired at Quiñónez while he was lying on the ground. He was shot six more times.

Both suspects removed belongings from Quiñónez and Arcalla before they got back in the vehicle and fled.

The National Police on Sunday detained a suspect identified as Johnson G. after he shot at two people who were attending Arcalla’s wake. 

He escaped on a bicycle but was captured after exchanging fire with the police.

It’s unknown if Johnson G. is one of the two shooters linked to the killings.
