Adrián López Ortiz, the general director of Grupo Noroeste, a media group that owns the newspaper Noroeste in the northwestern Mexican city of Culiacán, was driving home from the airport in April 2014 when an SUV intercepted him.

One of them drove off in his car and the other stayed behind, kicked López and then shot him in both legs.
