MEXICO CITY (AP) — Officials say a Mexican journalist has been gunned down in the Gulf Coast state of Tabasco.

The state attorney general's office said in a statement that radio journalist Jesus Ramos was shot and killed early Saturday.

Local media outlets reported that Ramos received multiple bullet wounds while eating breakfast at a restaurant that he frequented.

Ramos is the second journalist to be killed in Mexico this year. In January, the director of a community radio station was killed and dumped along a roadside in Baja California Sur.
