Another Texas M-B in the news

McAllen, An assassin fired a single shot into the window of a parked silver $ 100,000.00+ Mercedes-Benz killing a former high-ranking Mexican former federal officer with close ties to drug kingpins. Guillermo Calderoni died at a local hospital from the shot in the head. It also screwed up the left drivers window.

Texas M-B

Rick, yes the interior probably got messed up a little. Odd thing is another guy was in the car with him and never got hurt. A professional job no doubt, probably a small caliber gun as a larger caliber would have got the other guy also.

Bullet Proof

Wonder why he didn't have the Protection package on the car. Being in "That Line of Work", its incredibly arrogant/stupid of him not to have had the car bullet/bomb proofed.
