'Narcos' locations manager killed while scouting in Mexico

Variety reports that Carlos Muñoz Portal was scouting for the upcoming season of the Netflix cartel drama Narcos in central Mexico when he was shot multiple times.

It remains to be seen whether production on season four of Narcos will be in any way affected by Munoz's death, or whether the creatives will move forward with Mexico locations for the episodes yet to be filmed.

Police have said they are having difficulty investigating the circumstances of the death, as there is a lack of witnesses due to the area's sparse population.
