Drug hitmen in suits kill key witness in Mexico

MEXICO CITY (Reuters) - Suspected hitmen wearing dark suits shot dead a protected state witness in a Starbucks cafe in Mexico City on Tuesday, days after another witness was found dead.

Two assassins shot former federal policeman Edgar Enrique Bayardo several times as he sat in the busy coffee shop, the capital's prosecutor's office said. Police said both assailants escaped.

Bayardo's bodyguard was seriously injured and a customer at an adjacent table was also hurt, Mexico City district prosecutor Jaime Slomianski said.

Photos showed Bayardo's body lying on the floor surrounded by paper coffee cups.

"It was fairly full when these men in suits came in. Everyone threw themselves on the floor in fear," an eyewitness told Reuters.

This is normal in Ciudad Juarez, but it's scary that now this is happening in Mexico City. This is very unusual there. At least no other people were killed, only the target person.
