Another targeted shooting in the Cancun Hotel zone leaves one dead

Cancun, Q.R. — Another targeted beach shooting in the Cancun Hotel Zone has claimed a life. On Sunday, an unidentified man was approached on the beach by another man on foot who shot him several times before fleeing.

Witnesses called emergency services around 6:00 p.m. Sunday afternoon reporting the shooting of a male on the beach at Kilometer 10.6 along Kukulkan Boulevard of the hotel zone. When responding personnel arrived, they found the man laying in the sand with gunshot wounds.

He was rushed to the General Hospital of Cancun but died shortly after being admitted. He was alleged to have been a hotel waiter in the tourist area. He is the third targeted shooting in recent weeks.

Last week, two people, one of which was a waiter, were shot and killed on a Cancun Hotel Zone beach after a man opened fire against him. Three people were arrested within hours of that shooting.
