Mexican television journalist shot to death outside bank office




A Mexican journalist was shot to death in the central Mexican city of Puebla leaving a bank on Monday, April 15, reported the news agency Notimex. 

Since February 2013, journalist Alonso de la Colina Sordo was the host of a television news program in the state of Guerrero, one of the states with the highest levels of organized crime violence in the country. 

After the shooting, the killer robbed the journalist. Authorities are investigating to see if the crime was related to the robbery or was motivated by the journalist's profession. A source at the broadcaster TV Azteca said that the journalist fled Guerrero for Puebla after criminal organizations threatened him, according to the Agence France-Presse. 

Last November, the state of Puebla reported its first slain journalist, who was killed after covering a military operation there.
