Man gunned down outside Puerto Aventuras home

Puerto Aventuras, Q.R. — A man has been shot and killed outside his home in Puerto Aventuras. The shooting occurred Wednesday, activating a red code alert with local officials.

Reports say the man, who one media outlet referred to as a “well-known drug dealer”, was shot while driving his vehicle, but got out of his truck to run into his home when he collapsed. Neighbors say he was shot again after he collapsed.

He was found deceased outside his house on Limonarias Street. He was gunned down by two men aboard a motorcycle who fled the area after the shooting. Neighbors called emergency 911.

Municipal police and an ambulance arrived, however, the man had already died from being hit several times by gunfire.

Municipal and state police mounted a search of the area, but did not announce any arrests.
