Yucatecan injured with firearm in Cancun, in serious condition

A Yucatecan citizen is reported in critical condition after being shot on Monday June 17, around 9:30 pm, in downtown Cancun, Q. Roo.

The facts were recorded on Avenida Uxmal, Supermanzana 24, downtown Cancun, where emergency services arrived after reports of gunfire against a male person.

In a video recorded by a witness, the injured idenitifies himself as Jorge Solís, and claims not to have any relatives in the city of Cancun.

Unofficial versions indicate that Jorge, of Yucatecan origin, was shot during a robbery; he was attacked by an unidentified man wearing a pink polo shirt and a white cap.

Police officers and paramedics arrived on site and found Jorge wounded, lying in a pool of blood. He was transferred in an ambulance to the IMSS Clinic located on Avenida Coba, where he was denied medical attention.

Afterwards, he was taken to the General Hospital where he was admitted, apparently in serious condition.
