MEXICO CITY -- A popular singer, his manager and his driver were gunned down in an ambush after a concert in the border city of Reynosa in an apparent gangland killing yesterday as drug-related violence continued across Mexico.

The singer, 27-year-old Valentin Elizalde, was killed about 20 minutes after performing at a local fair.

According to news reports, gunmen in two vehicles chased Elizalde's black sport utility vehicle as he left the concert, then opened fire with automatic weapons as dozens of witnesses looked on. According to news reports, Elizalde was hit as many as eight times.
