QRoo.- 3 men and 2 women dead in massacre at bar in Tulum community

Tulum, Quintana Roo- An armed attack in the bar "La Ceiba" in the community of Manuel Uh May, in the transition zone of the municipality, left five dead, in addition to other injuries.

This Mayan community was just the protagonist of another armed attack last Tuesday, when a woman was shot in the buttock.

Today, an armed commando arrived at this bar, at kilometer 32 of the Tulum-Cobá highway, at around 10 o'clock at night, presumably with long weapons, killing five people, two women and three men.

Three people died outside the building, while two were left lying in the kitchen area. The rest of the diners fled to try to save their own lives.

According to witnesses, the bursts of these long weapons lasted at least 30 seconds.

At the place, about 5 kilometers away from the town, agents of the Municipal Police arrived, who cordoned off and reported to the State Attorney General's Office. No one has been arrested for these events.

Hours before, a person was murdered in the municipal seat, although it seems unlikely that these events are related to each other.
