[Ed. – Noteworthy because he was a city official, perhaps, but unfortunately, it’s getting more dangerous for all tourists, including Americans, south of the border. The details of this do sound more suspicious than most.]
An American tourist was shot and killed while apparently being robbed in a resort town on Mexico’s Pacific Coast that has become popular with surfers and Hollywood stars.
Douglas Bradley was killed Thursday in the hotel zone of Ixtapa. He was on Christmas vacation in neighboring Zihuatanejo and would have turned 50 the next day.
The city of Imperial Beach in San Diego County announced Bradley’s death on Friday. He was the city’s director of finance. …
Witnesses told local media they saw Bradley being chased by gunmen who shot him with a 9 mm handgun about 4 a.m., Mexico News Daily reported.
However, police weren’t called for four hours, and when they arrived they found Bradley’s body in a parking lot, the website reported.
