Residents report targeted shooting that left their Tulum neighbor dead

Tulum, Q.R. — Residents on Tauro Poniente Street reported a shooting that left one of their neighbors dead. On Wednesday night, a man was shot to death while sitting in the front yard of his Tulum home.

Neighbors reported seeing a gray motorcycle arrive shortly after 10:00 p.m. Wednesday. One man got off and began shooting at the man sitting in the yard. He got back on the bike and left the scene.

The targeted man tried to flee the spray of bullets aimed at him, but to no avail. He was hit at least twice in the chest.

Miguel “A”, the deceased, had a mechanic shop attached to his home. In 2015, he was a judicial officer with the municipality of Tulum. He was discharged from his position for reasons unknown. However, his neighbors knew him only as a mechanic.
