An Imperial Beach city administrator who was killed earlier this week in what appears to be a robbery while vacationing in a southern Mexican resort town had been shot three times, a Mexican official said.

Authorities are investigating the slaying Thursday of Doug Bradley, who friends and family said was a surfing aficionado and adventurous soul. As the city’s administrative services director, Bradley oversaw the budget and fiscal functions, and also served as the city treasurer.

Bradley died a day before his 50th birthday.
