Murder attempt on San Luis Rio Colorado Police Chief

For the second time in 3 years, the police chief of the Mexican border town of San Luis Rio Colorado has come under attack.

The San Luis Rio Colorado police chief is in critical but stable condition after an attack Monday night.

According to Spanish newspaper Diario Noticias, 48-year old Francisco Vasquez Bustamante was shot six times in his vehicle at a city intersection.
