Fourth Mexico reporter shot dead since March
Maximino Rodriguez Palacios “was shot and killed” outside a store as he arrived in his car with his wheelchair-bound wife, the Colectivo Pericu news website said. His wife was unharmed.
His attackers appeared to have used high-powered rifles, the site said.
With its ruthless drug cartels, Mexico ranks third in the world for the number of journalists killed, after Syria and Afghanistan, according to media rights group Reporters Without Borders.
Three other journalists covering organized crime in Mexico have been killed since last month, in Chihuahua, Guerrero and Veracruz states, according to officials and media groups.
