Singer/songwriter Facundo Cabral was shot to death Saturday while traveling to the airport after two performances in Guatemala.

Argentine-born Facundo was struck by bullets several times and died in the car.

Another vehicle where his bodyguard was traveling was riddled with 25 gunshots but nobody was wounded, police said.

There are three running theories about the murder. That it was a planned assassination, that it was an attempted theft, and there is also the possibility that the gunmen were targeting the businessman he was accompanied by.

Some media reports are coming in saying that two suspects are in custody.

Tragic day for Latin music. Our condolences to his family.
