JUAREZ, Mex. (KTSM) — Chihuahua State Police say the man violently gunned down inside his truck at a Juarez intersection Friday afternoon was a pastor from a Chihuahua town nearly five hours south of Juarez.

Salvador Atilano Galaviz Morales, 46, was shot to death at the intersection of Plutarco Elias Calles and Rubén Posada Pompa in North Juarez in a 2010 Honda Ridgeline.

A second person in Galaviz Morales’ truck was injured. Authorities have not given an update on that person’s condition.
