Mexico City: Canadian Executed in Shopping Mall Parking Lot

A 30-years-old Canadian citizen was shot dead by unknown assailants in Mexico City on Wednesday afternoon. The incident took place at around 13:00 hrs in the parking lot of the Via Santa Fe shopping mall, located in Mexico City’s Cuajimalpa district, situated some 17 kilometers southwest of the city center. Reportedly, the man was shot while approaching his luxury car. He was accompanied by his wife, a Colombian citizen, who remained unharmed in the attack. Ten cartridges were found at the crime scene. The victim showed four bullet impacts. It is said that the perpetrator, who allegedly approached his victim without saying a word, was accompanied by another armed man. Both fled on a motorcycle. No arrests have been made yet.

Oaxaqueño Analysis:

So far, no reports on the motive of the attack have been issued. Thus, it can only be speculated about the reason for the execution. According to reports, the victim, who was reportedly executed shortly after leaving the gym, recognized his attacker and subsequently attempted to flee. This would hint towards a personal motive. Taking the modus operandi of the assailants into consideration, the assassination seems to have been planned quite diligently and conducted in a rather professional manner. Thus, it appears plausible the attackers belonged to a criminal group. Given the victims’ luxury car, as well as the apparent circumstance that he had trained in the gym there, it seems plausible he lived in or nearby the exclusive area of Santa Fe. Nevertheless, this is only speculation by me. In August this year, several gunmen shot dead another Canadian in a shopping center in Guadalajara while on of his companions, a Mexican-American citizen, was seriously injured.
