Three violent events were recorded at different points of Cancun in less than three hours.
CANCUN — Violence in the city intensified on Tuesday, February 28, when two men were murdered execution-style in separate incidents, and an armed robbery took place, as reported by police officers in less than three hours.
The first case, reported at 8:15 am, took place at Hotel Tierra Caribe, located at Supermanzana 64, at the corner of Lopez Portillo and Bonampak avenues, where an individual entered the premises and shot the 44-year-old manager, whose identity was not revealed.
One worker was injured in the right cheekbone, however, he refused to be attended by paramedics of the Red Cross. Another employee was found cleaning up the blood on the floor, and he also refused to provide any information to the local authorities, apparently fearing for his own life.
The experts carried out an on-site inspection, but found no used cartridges, as apparently the evidence was removed from the crime scene prior to their arrival.
The Ministerial Police reported that the criminals did not take any valuables or money, which led authorities to speculate it was probably a drug-related execution, and not an attempted robbery.
Three hours later, at 11:13 am, two subjects aboard a motorcycle intercepted a vehicle on Politécnico Avenue, Supermanzana 51, and shot him at close range.
The injured man got out of a navy-blue Fiat, with State of Mexico license plates, and threw himself on the central median, asking for help, according to witnesses.
Another witness said that he heard two shots, and saw the two motorcyclists. The witness said the one who was behind had a green helmet, a black shirt and was carrying a firearm, and that then they went towards Nichupte avenue.
The experts in criminalistics found four 38 caliber shell casings. The wounded man was transferred by Red Cross paramedics to the hospital of specialties of the IMSS (Mexican Social Security Institute) of Region 510.
His condition was reported as severe, due to bullet impacts on his right side, left thorax, abdomen, and both arms.
Tuesday afternoon, hospital staff reported to the ministerial authorities the death of Antonio N, due to the serious injuries he presented. Antonio N was originally from Mexico City and held a law degree from Universidad del Valle de México.
The last of the acts of violence, was at noon, when subjects stole 100 thousand pesos ($5,000 USD) from a man in the parking lot of a shopping center, located on Kabah Avenue.
The report was received by emergency number 911, at 1:40 pm, where an armed robbery was reported of a customer leaving the Office Depot, located in Supermanzana 20, Tulum Avenue.
Martín N, 43 years old, a public accountant from Mexico City, told the ministerial authorities that he left a Bancomer ATM, where he withdrew 100,000 pesos, then went to the Office Depot to make a purchase with his assistant.
He pointed out that when they left the place and went to his vehicle, they were intercepted by a man wearing plaid shirt and blue denim trousers, a cap and dark glasses, who then pointed at them with a firearm and proceeded to snatch the briefcase where they carried the money.
The alleged robber was riding a BMW orange motorcycle, with his accomplice wearing a black sweatshirt. The ministerial police urged the victims to file their complaint.
