ZAPATA, Texas — A Texas sheriff says an American tourist was shot in Mexican waters after being approached by two boats of armed men.

Zapata County Sheriff Sigifredo Gonzalez said Thursday that a 30-year-old man and his wife were riding jet skis back from Mexico when the gunmen approached. Gonzalez said the man was shot in the head as the couple sped away.

Gonzalez said the wife fears her husband is dead. He said he has contacted the consulate in Mexico to ask them to look for the man.
