Mexican journalist Gerardo Torres Rentería was shot dead at his home in Acapulco, Guerrero

Gerardo Torres Rentería, a former correspondent for the Telemundo network in Acapulco, was shot dead this Thursday by gunmen at his home on Calle 2 in the Icacos neighborhood, in the port of Guerrero.

Initial reports indicate that state police have cordoned off the area around the home of the man who for several years left the report for the American channel.

A police operation was mounted at the scene which included the armed forces and the first information is that he received three gunshot wounds.

Witnesses say that after the shootings against the former collaborator of TV Azteca and Reuters, the alleged murderers fled in an unknown direction.

Staff from the Guerrero State Attorney General’s Office performed the first expert work.

Then, the personnel of the forensic service took charge of the body of the ex-reporter to transfer it to their premises and carry out the legal autopsy.

For this murder, the local prosecutor’s office will open investigations to establish responsibilities and clarify the causes of the death of the former journalist.
