Acapulco beach robbery leaves one man dead and one woman injured

Acapulco, Guerrero — One man was killed and a woman injured Saturday after a beach robbery in Acapulco. Police responded quickly to the afternoon call for assistance when other patrons from the beach reported gunfire.

The shooting happened Saturday on Icacos beach, an area outside a condominium complex in Acapulco. According to the Guerrero Attorney General’s Office, an investigation into the shooting death of one man has begun.

The Agency said that Ministerial Investigative Police agents responded to the Saturday report of gunfire. When they arrived, they found the lifeless body of one man and one injured woman. The woman was taken to a nearby hospital for medical attention.

The couple were reportedly tourists and victims of a cash robbery, although Guerrero authorities have not confirmed these reports.

The beach shooting occurred one day after two others were shot at La Cabaña restaurant on Playa Caleta in Acapulco. City police continue to investigate that shooting that left one dead on scene and another dying later in an Acapulco hospital.
