Man shot dead in front of Plaza Galerias

February 17, 2013


A man was shot dead in his vehicle outside the upscale Plaza Galerias mall in Zapopan on Friday afternoon.

The victim, identified as Jose Antonio Castro Rivera, 53, was killed at around 5.30 p.m. while waiting at a red light on Avenida Vallarta at the junction with Rafael Sanzio.

At least two men pulled up on motorcycle and opened fire on Castro’s gray Ford Ranger pickup truck, striking him in the face and the neck. The assailants escaped and the victim died before Green Cross paramedics arrived to treat him.

Several bullet holes were visible on the vehicle and police discovered at least ten shell casings at the crime scene. No arrests were made.
