Police Commander Shot Dead in Mexican Tourist City Acapulco

MEXICO CITY - A commander of the Federal Ministerial Police of the Mexican city of Acapulco, Gilberto Organista Nava, was shot dead on Saturday night in his vehicle, Guerrero State's officials said Sunday.

Upon arriving at the scene, in the La Mira neighborhood, officers of the state police and the army confirmed the death of Organista Nava, shot by a group of unknown perpetrators.

The incident took place shortly after 20.00 local time on Saturday (01.00 GMT Sunday), according to a statement from the Attorney General of Guerrero, a southern state of Mexico.

The Attorney General's Office has also launched an investigation into this homicide.

In Mexico, the Federal Ministerial Police is an auxiliary body of the Attorney General's Office.

According to the record of the National System of Public Security, Guerrero is the state with the highest number of people killed during the first quarter of 2017, with 550 cases.

In 2016, the beach resort town of Acapulco, an economic and tourist engine for Guerrero State, became the second most violent city in the world, after Caracas, according to an annual study by the Citizens Council For Public Security And Criminal Justice.

Acapulco returned to this second position after having been similarly placed in 2014, despite repeated attempts of the federal government and the state to bring peace to the city.
