Four alleged Cancun gang members detained in daylight murder of rival member

Cancun, Q.R. — Cancun detectives spent the weekend trying to determine if four alleged Cancun gang members are those responsible for the killing of a man from a rival group.

The four males were arrested at 4:00 p.m. July 15 by Municipal Police with support from agents from the National Anti-Kidnapping Coordination. They were taken into custody as persons of interest in the June 28 daylight shooting of a rival gang leader.

The man killed, 35-year-old Francisco Alberto N, was shot to death in the driveway of a Cancun house he had rented in the name of another person. While removing his items from the house, he was gunned down.

Cancun authorities later identified him as a generator of violence in the northern region of the state.

The four taken in for questioning, José “D”, Alberto “R”, Luis Francisco “R” and Jesús Miguel “H”, are being investigated for their possible participation in his murder. They are believed to be members of a rival criminal group called the Asónalos Cartel.
