Elements of Public Security of Quintana Roo, personnel from the Directorate of Civil Protection and the State Attorney General’s Office (FGE), arrived at the site. The area was cordoned off.

Almost 2 p.m., municipal authorities reported the murder of one more person, but in an invaded area baptized as October 2, adjacent to the sumptuous resort Aldea Zamá and considered the largest irregular colony in the town.

Witnesses chose to take shelter and the assassins took the opportunity to escape from the scene of the crime and although elements of the State Police and National Guard arrived at the scene, they could not find the alleged perpetrators
