Two shot in Cancun during early morning hours

Cancun, Q.R. — A man and a women were found shot Friday in the region of 247 of Cancun.

Police received the report of injured persons near the Los Tules Avenue around 7:10 a.m. in the Villas Otoch subdivision. When they arrived, they found two bodies lying on the ground.

Paramedics from the Red Cross arrived and confirmed that the man had already died, while the injured woman was transferred to the General Hospital in serious condition.

Reports say the couple were shot while walking on a sidewalk apparently on their way to work at a construction site. Both received numerous bullet wounds. Both were identified after police went through the bags they were carrying.

The attorney general says there is no information on who shot the couple or where or how those responsible fled.
