The mayor of Ecuador’s third largest city was slain Sunday in a shooting that killed one other person and wounded four more, including two suspected attackers, officials said.
Agustín Intriago, a 38-year-old lawyer, belonged to the local Better City movement in the port city of Manta and was recently re-elected to a term that began in May.
On his Twitter account, Interior Minister Juan Zapata reported Intriago’s slaying and the other casualties. He said the two wounded people suspected of being involved in the attack were receiving medical attention under police surveillance.
A motive for the attack, which occurred while the mayor was making a neighborhood visit, was not immediately disclosed.
