Cancun prison guard shot, killed while inside bar

Cancun, Q.R. — A prison guard from a Cancun jail was shot and killed Friday while inside a bar. The shooting happened just after midnight at a bar along Kabah Avenue.

Elements of the Quintana Roo Police arrived on scene to find an injured male identified as Marlon A. Paramedics were also called, however, they were only able to pronounce the death of the man.

Police interviewed three men, also prison guards and friends of Marlon A. They reported arriving at the bar around 9:00 p.m. While in the bar, four men approached their table, taking one of them to the bathroom where, several minutes later, they reported hearing gunfire.

When they entered the bathroom, they were threatened by one of the men to not interfere. The four men then left the bar and boarded a vehicle. The victim was found by police laying on the bathroom floor of the bar where he was later pronounced by paramedics.
