Pedro Patrón González, former Secretary of Public Security of Yecapixtla, Morelos, was found dead Thursday afternoon in the municipality of Yecapixtla.
His bullet-ridden body was found around 17:00 hours in the street of Gustavo Díaz Ordaz, in the colony Juan Morales.
According to witnesses, three masked gunmen who were traveling in a gray Volkswagen Jetta executed the former Secretary of Public Security as he was arriving at his house. Another man was also wounded, presumably his neighbor, as they were greeting each other.
The unidentified wounded man was transported to the hospital of Cuautla, where his health is reported as serious.
According to the police report, in the street Tetecala in the colony Morelos, municipality of Cuautla, another body was found belonging to an unidentified man inside a truck.
Medical Examiners of the Attorney General of the state went to both sites for the removal of the bodies, but so far the cause of death is unknown and no people have been detained.
Patrón González was the Secretary of Public Security from the beginning of the municipal administration of Yecapixtla, but he was removed from office because of the implementation of the Mando Único (Single Command).
