All four victims worked for radio station Switch 105.9 FM. They were announcer Allan González, head of marketing Armando Guerrero, technician Lino Flores and Alejandro Arriaga, a member of the radio station’s security team.
The four media workers were carrying out a promotional broadcast from a mobile radio unit outside a restaurant, when assailants burst into the restaurant and began shooting customers before turning to the mobile unit.
