On Sunday April 8 at 23:21 hours a call to 911 reported that gunshots were being fired from a black car, at least 30 times, against the facade and entrance of the building of La Jornada Maya newspaper in the municipality of Solidaridad (Playa del Carmen).
LA Jornada Maya headquarters in Playa are located on the corer of Calle 1 Sur with Avenida 55 in Colonia El Ejido.
After the shooting, the aggressors fled the scene. Municipal and State police went to the area, cordoned it off to preserve the evidence that was embedded in the newspaper’s security booth and immeidately started the corresponding investigation.
Agents of the Solidaridad Public Security directorate arrived on site, where they obtained the statement made by the security guard who indicated that he had a family quarrel with his brother-in-law, identified him as the presumed responsible and so police officers went to the address of the suspect, where he was recognized by the security guard as the material author of the attack.
The man was arrested and placed under custody of the authorities to initiate the investigation.
