A U.S. citizen from Chicago who was traveling with his family in Mexico was brutally beaten and shot three times in front of his family during an ambush by a Mexican drug cartel.
As the Daily Mail reports:
A U.S. citizen has been gravely injured after being shot three times and left for dead after armed men ambushed him and his family on a remote road in Mexico.
Jose Luis Guiterrez, 52, was severely beaten and shot in the abdomen and leg during the violent ambush in the state of Zacatecas on Monday.
Guiterrez, who lives in Chicago where he works as a landscaper, was en route to the nearby state of Jalisco to spend Christmas with relatives…
The assailants dragged him from the car and drove off with him in their SUV – abandoning his daughter and father.
Guiterrez was then beaten and shot before being left for dead, after being found by authorities he was airlifted to a hospital where he is currently being guarded by authorities.
