Cancun residents describe shooting to police that left taxi driver dead

Cancun, Q.R. — Gunmen who shot and killed a Cancun taxi driver Wednesday night remain on the loose. The taxi, which was parked outside a private home, was shot at by what witnesses described as subjects aboard a white Versa car.

The driver of the taxi, who has not been unidentified, was hit as was his female passenger. Neighbors in SM 220 called police after hearing gunfire. When they arrived, they located the man and woman in the front seats of the cab.

Responding paramedics were unable to help the male driver, who they pronounced on scene. The woman, who was said injured in the targeted shooting, was taken to hospital for treatment. The area was cordoned off while evidence was gathered.
