Javier Valdez was shot and killed when assailants opened fire on his auto in the state capital Culiacan, according to RioDoce, the local media outlet he co-founded and where he continued to work.
Valdez was the fifth journalist to be killed this year in a country plagued by violence related to drug gangs, according to officials and media rights groups.
