Another arrest made in deadly Tulum restaurant shooting

Tulum, Q.R. — Another suspect related to the deadly October Tulum shooting has been taken into police custody. On Monday, the Attorney General’s Office reported the arrest of Moisés C.

The state agency says Moisés C was apprehended after follow-up investigations related to the double homicide at La Malquerida restaurant of Tulum. The FGE says Moisés C is being charged with manslaughter, attempted murder and qualified injuries after he is believed to be one of the subjects who fired into the restaurant.

The Fiscalía General del Estado (FGE) reports that during his arrest, which took place on a street outside a Tulum home, police seized 22 short firearms, three long firearms, 3,703 cartridges and 14 packages of cocaine with a net weight of 15.9 grams, among other objects. The vehicle in which he was traveling on the day of the shooing has also been seized.

To date, eight people have been arrested, two women and six men, on drug and firearm charges in relation to the October 20 shooting. The FGE added that ballistic analysis of the firearms is being carried out to determine whether or not the weapons seized have been used in other acts of violence.
