A federal judge in Mexico state was gunned down after leaving his home on Monday Oct. 17.
According to several reports, Vicente Antonio Bermudez Zacarias, 37, a district court judge in Mexico state, was shot point blank to the head.
He died en route to the hospital.
Luis María Aguilar Morales, president of the Mexico Supreme Court, released a statement confirming Bermudez’s death and called for authorities to investigate what happened.
“We have already been in contact with the competent authorities to immediately investigate this case and have it resolved,” Morales said, according to Aristegui Noticias. “Federal judges are people who devote their lives, their personal integrity, moral and physical, to administering federal justice and are required to have the security and tranquility that their independence guarantees.”
Bermudez had been a federal judge since December 2013. Before that he was a specialized judge and had at least one case involving the leader of Jalisco New Generation Cartel, Abigail Gonzalez Valencia. In March, Bermundez suspended the extradition of drug kingpin Joaquin “El Chapo” Guzman.
Authorities so far have not released a motive for his murder.
