CANCÚN — A violent attack early Sunday April 2 resulted in three men shot dead, a security guard wounded and another person injured from a shooting that took place in the bar Santino, located on Coba avenue, a block away from Cancún’s city hall.
At approximately 7:30 a.m. there were reports of people injured by firearms in Santino’s bar.
When police and emergency agents arrived, they found several people with gunshot wounds, who claimed that they had been attacked in the nightclub.
The attack left a total of five bar patrons and a security guard injured by gunfire, three of which have already died.
In the incident at Santino’s bar police found a “narcomanta” or warning banner from the Cartel de Jalisco Nueva Generación with the words, “We come for the plaza CJNG”.
Witnesses said at least five armed men entered the bar, threatened customers and shot a man in the head in an execution-style killing. He was believed to be the manager or owner.
As they were leaving the bar, the presumed hit men also fired on a group of taxi drivers stationed outside the establishment. One of the drivers was shot dead in his vehicle and another died on the way to the hospital, according to regional daily La Jornada Maya.
