A man was shot dead on Monday September 18th, at Colonia Las Palmas, which makes it homicide case number 44 so far this year in Playa del Carmen.

According to preliminary information, three men traveling aboard a white Voyager van drove by, shooting the man at point-blank.  This drive-by shooting took place on Avenida Paseos del Mayab, between Constituyentes Avenue and Las Palmas Boulevard, Fraccionamento Las Palmas I, in the west end of this tourist destination.

Another version indicates that the murderers actually chased the man, who tried to get away on foot, but ended up dead after being shot several times.

The victim, between the ages of 35 and 40, was shot in the head and chest, although residents of  Fraccionamento Las Palmas I reported hearing up to 10 detonations. He was wearing shorts and sneakers and no shirt.

The events occurred around 11:15 p.m., and the crime scene was cordoned off by police to gather evidence of the case. No arrests have been made in relation with this cold blooded murder.
