“In the community of Las Lomas, the candidate of the PRI-PAN-PRD alliance in Coyuca de Benítez, José Alfredo Cabrera Barrientos, was murdered,” the agency said in a statement on the social network X.

The images spread on the Internet capture the moment in which the mayoral candidate communicates with voters, thanks them for their support, while the atmosphere at the rally is positive. Suddenly, from behind, a man points a gun at José Alfredo Cabrera Barrientos and fires, more than a dozen of them in total.

This man was not the first candidate murdered in Mexico during the electoral campaign. As the newspaper El Universal points out, in the state of Guerrero five candidates for mayor of several cities and one candidate for deputy were murdered.

A total of 82 people have been murdered in Mexico since last summer in relation to electoral processes, 34 of whom were candidates for various local offices.
