'Little Rooster,' Mexican singer, slain
by UPI

MEXICO CITY - A popular Mexican singer of songs about the country's drug trafficking was killed by drug gang members, El Universal reported Thursday.

Known as the "Little Rooster," Jesus Rey David Alfaro was gunned down in the border town of Tijuana, along with his manager and assistant.

The body of Alfaro, believed to have ties to the Arellano Felix cartel, was discovered last week with a bullet wound to his head, said authorities.

He was the latest of at least a half dozen singers killed this year by drug traffickers.

Mexican President Felipe Calderon has sent thousands of soldiers to border towns in a crackdown on rampant drug trafficking and crime associated with smuggling.
