Share This

On Sunday April 8 at 23:21 hours a call to 911 reported that firearms were being detonated from a black car, at least 30 times, against the facade and entrance of the building of La Jornada Maya newspaper in the municipality of Solidaridad (Playa del Carmen). The site is located on Calle 1 South with Avenue 55 in Colonia El Ejido.

After shooting the place, the aggressors fled the scene. Municipal and state police went to the area, cordoned it off to preserve the evidence that was embedded in the newspaper’s security booth.


Agents of the Solidarity Public Security directorate arrived, where they obtained the statement made by the security guard who indicated he had a family quarrel with his brother-in-law, identified him as the presumed responsible and so police officers went to the address of the suspect, where he was recognized by the security guard as the material author of the attack. The man was arrested and placed under custody of the authorities to initiate the investigation.
