On Sunday February 19, a shoot out took place at a party in Villas Otoch, at the 247 region in Cancun, leaving two people dead and one wounded.

According to witnesses, a motorcycle arrived at the place where a group of people was gathered and the driver opened fire on them. One individual died right on the spot and one more died minutes later at a local hospital.

In a preliminary analysis, neighbors identified the person executed with the nickname of ‘El Chino’. The person who died in the hospital is yet to be identified.

So far this year, 15 people have been executed in the Cancun urban area.

This statistic shows that every three and a half days, at least one case of execution takes place in the area, with an average of two persons executed per week.

In 2016, there was an average of one crime related execution per month during the first two months of the year, which means that between January and February, only two were executed.
