Marcos Alberto Corona Baltazar, temporary director of the Puente Grande de Jalisco Federal Prison, lost his life after being gunned down.
The assault occurred on the El Salto Highway via Agua Blanca and Zapotlanejo, in the Paseo Puente Viejo neighborhood in Tonalá.
The official was a temporary fill in for prison director Salvador Almonte Solís, as he recovers from COVID-19.
Witnesses to the assault heard several shots fired, and minutes later the attackers fled.
According to eyewitness accounts, the man was followed by groups from other vehicles, who fired shots at him. Once the victim was forced off the street, the gunmen descended from their units to riddle him on both sides of the car.
At the crime scene at least 17 casings percussed by firearms of various calibers were located.
