Singing Earns Javier Rosas Six Bullets


Javier Rosas, a popular Mexican singer, who gained attention for his  song about a high-heeled female drug trafficker, is in intensive care after being shot six times in an ambush that killed two other people. He was injured early on Sunday morning when gunmen armed with AK-47 assault rifles opened fire on his car in Culiacán, the capital of Sinaloa state, known as the home of the Sinaloa Cartel.

The attack was a latest in a spate of incidents targeting groups who singnarcocorridos – ballads which glorify drug traffickers to the music of accordions, Sousaphones and machine gun sound effects.
