In Maxico, at least five people, including four foreigners, were killed and 15 were wounded early today when a shooter opened fire at a nightclub in a resort in Mexico city during a music festival.
Quintana Roo State Attorney General Miguel Angel Pech told a press conference that two Canadians, an Italian and a Colombian were killed. A woman died in the stampede to exit the club.Pech said the incident began when a person entered the Blue Parrot nightclub armed around 3.00 a.m. on Monday morning, during the closing of the festival. Another person tried to stop the person, sparking a gunfight that drew in security staff.
Pech added that 15 people were injured, of whom 10 are still in hospital. Four people were arrested on suspicion of being involved in the incident. The shooting represents a major blow to Mexico's tourism industry, which has been one of the few bright spots in the economy thanks to a weak peso exchange rate.
