LOS CABOS, Mexico (AP) - Police officials say the eldest brother of Mexico's once-feared Arellano Felix drug clan has been shot to death in the Baja California beach resort of Cabo San Lucas by a gunman wearing a clown costume.

Authorities with the municipal police force and Baja California Sur state prosecutor's office said Saturday that Francisco Rafael Arellano Felix's son confirmed his identity at the scene.

The officials were not authorized to be quoted by name. They say Arellano Felix was shot late Friday during a party held at a rented beach house. The costumed gunman wore a round clown nose.

Arellano Felix was the eldest of seven brothers, most of whom have died or been arrested.

He served time on drug charges in the United States but was released and deported in 2008.
