An anti-cartel Mexican politician is shot point blank in the back of the head while taking a selfie with a fan.


Fernando Purón, former mayor of Piedras Negras from 2014 to 2017, had been participating in a congressional debate on Friday when he was gunned down. While taking selfies with constituents, a bearded man can be seen coming up behind Purón and shooting him in the head. Purón’s death makes him as the 112th political candidate to be murdered in Mexico since September of last year.
