Mexico City: The mayor of Aquila, a town in eastern Mexico, was gunned down by a police commander following a "heated argument", the Veracruz state Attorney General`s Office said.

Geronimo Manuel Garcia Rosas was shot early Monday by Adan Gonzalez Vega, who was arrested by Public Safety Secretariat officers, the AG`s office said.

The shooting occurred while the mayor and the municipal police department`s second-in-command "were in a meeting", the AG`s office said.

The two men began to argue and Gonzalez Vega drew his weapon and shot the mayor, who died while being treated at a hospital.

Aquila is a small town in western Veracruz that is home, according to the 2010 census, to 1,797 people.
