Tegucigalpa – A Honduran radio reporter was shot dead in the coastal city of Tocoa, the third journalist to be killed in the country this month, officials said on Monday.

Authorities said reporter Nahum Palacios Arteaga, 34, was killed late on Sunday while driving his car.

"Two vehicles blocked his car's path, then (gunmen) opened fire," said Leonel Sauceda, spokesperson from the office of security.

Officials said there was no doubt that the attack was meant to kill, because a total of 41 shots were fired at his car.

A female passenger in the vehicle was hospitalised after being wounded in the shooting. Authorities said they’re investigating Arteaga's professional and personal ties for leads in the case.

Sunday's fatal attack follows one that took place on Thursday in the port city of La Ceiba, on the Caribbean coast north of Tegucigalpa, in which 51-year old newspaper reporter David Meza was killed.

And on March 2, another journalist, Joseph Hernandez, 26, was fatally shot, according to officials, who said he was killed in Tegucigalpa.
