Gunmen in Mexico have killed a mayor in the western state of Colima and wounded another in the neighbouring state of Michoacan. The Colima state prosecutors’ office says Mayor Crispin Gutierrez Moreno of the town of Ixtlahuacan was shot dead yesterday as he drove on a highway.  In Michoacan, state police say Jose Misael Gonzalez, mayor of the town of Coalcoman, was shot in the shoulder early yesterday. He was in stable condition.  Gonzalez participated in a 2013 vigilante movement that largely kicked the Knights Templar drug cartel out of the state. Dozens of mayors have been shot to death in Mexico in recent years, often by drug gangs or corrupt police.
