Downtown Cancun Shooting

Just a day following the tragic shooting at the Blue Parrot Nightclub, downtown Cancun was rocked when gunmen attacked the state prosecutor’s office with explosive devices and firearms which resulted in four deaths; reportedly, three of the gunmen were killed along with one police officer.  While there is no evidence at the present time to link the two events, many individuals (tourists and locals) are now wondering whether Cancun’s insulation from Mexico’s problem with drug cartels has now reached this popular tourist destination.  Here is a short article with more information about both attacks.

Until these incidents have been thoroughly investigated, tourists are encouraged to speak with their resort/hotel staff prior to leaving the premises in order to know what areas, if any, to avoid for safety reasons.
