Mexico’s El Loco Elizalde Killed

Mexican singer El Loco Elizalde, aka Carlos Ocaranza Rodriguez, was shot and killed outside of a bar in Guadalajara, Mexico, Aug. 16.

Rodriguez, known for his “narcocorrido” ballads reportedly glorifying the drug trade, was shot twice by unknown gunmen who fled the scene on a motorcycle. His manager, Jorge Altamirano Pelayo, was also shot and died of his injuries the next day, according to police.

Police said Rodriguez received death threats in the past and are looking into possible drug gang ties.
