A Mexican pastor has been gunned down nine years after his son was also shot and killed.

Eduardo ‘Lalo’ Garcia was shot at least six times as he attempted to escape a drugs gang in the city of Juarez.

Garcia’s daughter was also kidnapped 18 months after his son was murdered, and he had to pay a ransom to free her.

According to Premier, drug cartels target church leaders for kidnappings because they think churches have a lot of money.
