ACAPULCO, Mexico (AP) — Authorities in Guerrero say gunmen have killed the leader of one of the largest unions in the state.

State spokesman Jose Villanueva says Fernando Vazquez Bustos was traveling in a car in the resort city of Acapulco when gunmen opened fire from a moving vehicle killing, him on the spot Friday.

Villanueva said investigators found a message written on a piece of cardboard near the scene of the crime but wouldn't reveal its contents.

Vazquez Bustos was the leader of the Acapulco chapter of the Guerrero State Public Officials Union. He represented 1,200 of the 5,000 union members.

Villanueva said police don't have a motive in the killing.
