Another man was killed and two more were wounded.

Vicente Zambada Reyes, nephew of Jesús "El Mayo" Zambada, was killed during an attack, along another young man, according to reports.

Vicente, son of Jesús Reynaldo Zambada García "El Rey," was traveling on a pick up along other men when another vehicle was positioned on their side and their occupants shot at them.

Trinidad Humberto Ávila Benítez and his cousin Ignacio Valdez Benítez were injured in the attack. They received first aid from paramedics and then they were transferred to a hospital, where they are under police custody.

Zambada's father, Jesús Reynaldo, was arrested on October 20, 2008, along other 16 people, among them one of his children.

In 2012, he was accused of heading the drug traffic operations in the International Airport of Mexico City and was extradited to the United States, where he is on trial for drug-related crimes.

Vicente's uncle, "El Mayo" Zambada, was also extradited to the United States in 2012.
