The judge presiding over the case of the infamous drug lord Joaquin "El Chapo" Guzman was gunned down outside of his home in Mexico.
On Monday, Vicente Antonio Bermudez Zacarias, a federal judge in Mexico, was fatally shot in the head while jogging in front of his home in Metepec, Mexico, which is about 45 miles west of Mexico City.
According to the Wall Street Journal, Vincente Antonio Bermudez Zacarias was a district court magistrate for appeals and civil judgments in Toluca, a city near where he lived in Metepec.
In addition to several challenges from El Chapo's lawyers, the judge also handled challenges from the lawyers of Abigael Gonzalez Valencia, a leader of Los Cuinis cartel, and Miguel Trevino, a leader of the Zetas cartel who's now in jail.
According to mySA.com, the judge wasn't given any protection while presiding over those cases.
