Quintana Roo, (October 23, 2021).- The attacks in busy tourist areas of Quintana Roo continue, because in less than 24 hours, after the shooting that occurred in Tulum, which left two foreigners dead, a man was injured with a firearm in front of dozens of tourists in Playa del Carmen.
According to police reports, a man who left the beach and was walking down Calle 8 was shot in front of dozens of tourists by two men who fled the scene after shooting their target, in the center of the city. The armed attack spread panic among tourists who fled the area.
