MEXICO CITY (Reuters) – A gunman in a clown costume shot and killed the oldest brother of one of Mexico’s most notorious drug trafficking families in the resort of Los Cabos, authorities said on Saturday.
Francisco Rafael Arellano Felix, 63, a former leader of the Tijuana Cartel, was shot in the head late on Friday at a family gathering in the southern tip of the state of Baja California Sur, a spokesman for state prosecutors said.
“A person dressed as a clown took his life,” he said.
Local media reported that the killer had two accomplices, but this was not yet clear, the spokesman said. The gunman fled the scene.
