Trio arrested after shooting a Playa del Carmen office worker during robbery

Playa del Carmen, Q.R. — A real estate office worker was shot in the leg during an assault in the Villas del Sol subdivision of Playa del Carmen.

The shooting led to a police mobilization and the arrest of three subjects who were fleeing in a motorcycle taxi. Reports say one of the three entered the Avenida Gavilanes real estate office looking for cash while the other two kept watch outside.

Before leaving with two cell phones and an undisclosed amount of money, the gunman shot the office worker in the leg. After a search, police were successful in locating all three a few blocks from the office. The trio were found in possession of a pistol and knife as well as numerous other cell phones.
