Last night the mayor of La Piedad, Michoacan, Ricardo Guzman Romero, was campaigning for the PAN Party when he was brutally executed.
Accompanied by about 20 young people, the PAN mayor was hanging a banner in support of Luisa María Calderón, known as Cocoa and who is running for governor of Michoacán, and who is also the sister of President Felipe Calderon.
As they were hanging the banner a Jeep Liberty truck arrived at the scene, where several gunmen exited the vehicle. They charged at the mayor and opened fire killing him instantly. The criminals were then able to flee.
