Playa del Carmen police arrest three after being shot at

Playa del Carmen, Q.R. — Agents of the Ministerial Police were victims of a bullet attack from inside a Playa del Carmen house Thursday.

Police were reportedly passing along on Dominicos Street in the residential area of Villas del Sol when subjects inside a home began firing at them. Police returned fire and requested support, which arrived to assist them.

Neighbors confirmed the gunfire. Before it was over, Municipal Police arrested three people and seized several weapons.

Less than two weeks ago, a group of nine men were taken into custody after physically attacking police officers stopped at a convenience store in Playa del Carmen.
