A Los Zetas Cartel commander, who was accused of being responsible for the slaying of Mexican activist Miriam Elizabeth Rodriguez Martinez, was killed in a firefight with security forces in the border state of Tamaulipas.

The activist lived under constant threats after looking into her daughter’s murder and putting pressure on the government to fight against organized crime.

According to Mexican officials, Antonio Alvarado Lopez also known as“Alushe” was killed over the weekend along with one of his associates in a shootout with Mexican soldiers in downtown San Fernando at the residence of one of his mistresses, El Manana reported.

The criminal leader was one of the material suspects in the murder of Tamaulipas activist Miriam Elizabeth Rodriguez Martinez.

In an effort to flee, the suspect faced off against the military, leading to a firefight that blocked off various streets in the city. In the shootout, the Los Zetas head died alongside his gunman, Gustavo Muñoz Campos.

After the incident, military forces apprehended four individuals including Maria Ines Martinez, Alvarado Lopez’s purported mistress.

The Tamaulipas government said it was conducting a search operation to arrest Alvarado Lopez.

Mexican authorities killed Antonio Alvarado Lopez nicknamed “Alushe”, who was identified as the chief perpetrator in the murder of the activist Miriam Rodríguez in San Fernando.

However, Breitbart Texas reported that the suspect was already under military surveillance after an emerging intelligence profile revealed that he would regularly go to see his mistress in the city.

Authorities identified the cartel leader as one of the suspects in the killing Miriam Elizabeth Rodriguez Martinez.

The mother was shot and killed in May outside of her home.

The probe into the incident revealed that Alvarado Lopez and three other Zetas members were responsible for the killing due to the woman’s fight to bring her daughter’s killers to justice.
