(AP) — Two people are dead and three are wounded following a shooting in the Mexican resort of Cancun.
Prosecutors in the Caribbean state of Quintana Roo say the shootings occurred at a house in a low-income neighborhood, far from the beachside hotel zone.
The state prosecutor’s office said Monday that a pistol and drugs were seized at the home. Five people were arrested.
The shootings follow a dramatic attack on a pickup truck Saturday on one of Cancun’s main boulevards, closer to the tourist zone.
Attackers opened fire on the truck at a stoplight with an assault rifle, killing three of the occupants and wounding a fourth.
And on Saturday, assailants gunned down a police officer further south on the coast in the resort town of Playa del Carmen.
