Cristhian was shot while he was walking. His assassins escaped on a motorcycle.

MORELOS .- A transgender man was murdered a few meters from the tunnel that connects the Antonio Barona neighborhood with the Universe, in the municipality of Cuernavaca.

The crime was committed by two men who escaped on a motorcycle.

It was around 2:30 pm when the victim, identified as Cristhian, was walking towards Viaducto street; then, a stocky guy and another of average build appeared behind him to shoot him.

Later, both criminals identified as inhabitants of the Antonio Barona neighborhood left the scene.

The boy's parents arrived to identify him, but could no longer approach the body because the police cordoned off the area. Agents of the State Prosecutor's Office later requested CCTV footage from nearby businesses to try to clarify the case.

It is believed that this homicide was due to drug dealing, although the motive was not disclosed at the scene, a location where six murders have been committed in recent years.
