Four gunmen on Tuesday attacked the head of police for the southeastern Mexican state of Tabasco, injuring the chief and killing his driver.

Francisco Fernandez Solis, Public Security Chief of Tabasco, was shot in his right arm as he was leaving a hotel in northern Villahermosa, the capital of Tabasco, at 8:30 a.m. local time (1430 GMT).

Police found around 50 shells from long-range guns at the scene of the attack, which left the car riddled with bullet holes.

Fernandez was carried to Villahermosa's military hospital.

Armando Brito Perez, nephew of the ill-fated driver, told reporters that Fernandez needed an escort because of the problems in the state.
