Cancun, Q.R. — Another Cancun taxi driver was found shot to death while inside his cab. He is the second in 24 hours. On Thursday, emergency services received several citizen reports of the shooting. Police responding to the 2:00 p.m. call arrived at the scene to find the male taxi driver laying on the road outside the driver’s side door.
