Jose Efrain Garcia was killed when gunmen blocked his vehicle on a road and opened fire.
The earthquake caused extensive damage to Mexico City.
A 7.1-magnitude earthquake struck central Mexico on Tuesday, collapsing buildings and killing dozens of people on the anniversary of a 1985 quake that devastated Mexico City.
Coming less than two weeks after a deadly temblor off the country's Pacific coast, and just hours after a siren signaled an annual earthquake drill in the capital, Tuesday's quake shook the ground with terrifying force, buckling walls and sending panicked residents fleeing into the streets. There were reports of fires and gas leaks.
Rescuers searched for survivors through the night after Tuesday's powerful earthquake shook Mexico City and surrounding states, killing scores and leaving many trapped under collapsed buildings.
