Security forces killed on Wednesday one of two suspects in a shooting incident which left two policemen killed last month, reported the state news agency MENA.
A high-ranking official at Cairo's Criminal Investigation Department was gunned down alongside a conscript on April 21 at the Helmeyet al-Zaytoun district.
Security forces were able to locate the hiding place of one of the suspects in the case, reported MENA, adding that the forces raided his place at the outskirts of Cairo on Wednesday.
The suspect was reportedly killed in an exchange of fire with the security forces.
Bombings and shootings targeting security forces have surged since the military ouster of Islamist president Mohamed Mursi in July 2013, following mass protests against his rule.
