At least four men armed with assault rifles arrived at the Malquerida bar, located near the intersection of Centauro street and Tulum avenue, and opened fire at the patrons before fleeing the scene in two vehicles. The attack killed at least one foreign tourist and wounded five other individuals. The homicide victim’s nationality has yet to be released. Authorities are pursuing the suspects.
