Five people were shot dead in Cancún and five others wounded after gunmen had broken down in a bar in the Mexican holiday town and opened the fire.
Quintana Roo prosecutors said the attack took place on Saturday in a club called La Kuka, on a main street in the center of Cancun, about 6 km from the tourist hotel zone on the beach of the Caribbean city, on the Yucatán peninsula.
Prosecutors said four men took a long gun and three handguns. Two of the injured were in critical condition.
Total violence has increased in Cancún and across the state of Quintana Roo, with reports that the Jalisco New Generation cartel has moved into the area and has fought local gangs for control.
Load According to federal authorities, 774 people were killed in the state last year, more than twice as many as in 2017. The number of 359 killings reported in 2017 is more than double that.
Also in January, armed men shot seven people in a house in Cancún in a dispute between street-level drug traffickers.
State police said at the time that a suspected gang leader associated with the Jalisco gang was behind the attack.
