CANCUN, Mexico — Authorities in the Mexican resort of Cancun say two gunmen burst into a bar in a working-class neighborhood and fatally shot seven people. Four others were wounded.
Public Safety Secretary Jesus Aiza said most of the victims belonged to a taxi drivers union.
Aiza says the assailants arrived at “The Mermaid” bar in a poor area far from Cancun’s hotel zone in two cars Thursday afternoon. He said two gunmen using automatic rifles went inside and began shooting.
Aiza said soldiers are guarding the hospital where the wounded are being treated.
He says police were trying to determine a motive for the attack.
