A Mexican National from the state of Chiapas, was mortally wounded last night at one of El Rosario, Sinaloa's more prominent hotels located near Federal Highway 15.
The Buyer, Hilario Munoz Chavez, 57, was in town for the purchase of mangoes.
The event took place on Wednesday evening and eyewitness reports claim that two men were waiting to ambush Mr. Munoz, when he attempted to slam the door to protect himself.
The assailants fired into Mr. Munoz wounding him in the abdomen. The assailants were looking for substantial sums of money that are normally associated with the wholesale purchase of mangoes.
Apparently, the victim was not carrying any substantial amount of money and all the assailants got away with was the victims wallet with approximately 700 mexican pesos or less than $50.00 usd.
The victim was attended to by the Red Cross who attempted to save his life.
The Body was ultimately transferred to the IMSS Hospital in Mazatlan where Mr. Munoz was pronounced Dead.
