In a statement, the PGJEM pointed out that the investigation would allow to identify those responsible for the murder.

According to preliminary information, the mayor was traveling in a vehicle on the Naucalpan-Ixtlahuaca highway, near the Santa María Mazatla community, when various men aboard trucks allegedly intercepted the vehicle and shot the mayor repeatedly, causing his death.

The PGJEM mentioned that two people traveling with the mayor also died, and two more were hurt, seemingly members of his security team, which were taken to different hospitals to receive treatment.

NATIONAL ACTION PARTY REACTS

The president of the National Action Party (PAN), Ricardo Anaya, demanded an in-depth investigation to find those responsible for the murder of the PAN mayor of Jilotzingo, José Antonio Mayen.

“The party has contacted the family, what is important is to send a message of profound solidarity with his family, but also to demand a serious, in-depth investigation to find those responsible and apply the full force of the law,” he stated.

Anaya added that in the last years homicides have increased by 12 percent in Mexico, demanding that federal authorities guarantee the security of next June’s elections.
