TV Cameraman Gunned Down in Mexican Caribbean Resort City

CANCUN, Mexico – Television cameraman Javier Rodriguez Balladares and a companion were gunned down in the Mexican Caribbean resort city of Cancun, officials and media reports said.

Rodriguez Balladares and his friend were attacked on Wednesday by at least two gunmen in an urban area of Cancun, the Quintana Roo state Attorney General’s Office said.

“We are sorry to report that one of the two killed this afternoon in Cancun was our colleague cameraman,” the Quintana Roo cable television channel said Wednesday.

“Both people were killed instantly and were found lying between parked cars in plain sight,” the AG’s office said.

The cameraman often sold used cars and had sold a vehicle on Wednesday, which is why his colleagues suspect the motive for the killings may have been robbery.

Last month, a journalist was gunned down in the Caribbean resort town of Playa del Carmen.

Ruben Pat Cahuich was shot at least twice outside a bar near the main street in the town.

Pat Cauich worked for several media outlets and websites in Playa del Carmen, and he owned the weekly Playa News.

On June 29, Jose Guadalupe Chan, who worked for Playa News, was murdered at a bar in Playa del Carmen.

Mexico is considered one of the most dangerous countries in the world for journalists.
