At least three people were killed in a shooting and subsequent confrontation with police on Saturday, April 2nd, at a beachside restaurant in Mexico’s Pacific coast resort of Acapulco.
The prosecutor’s office in Guerrero state, where Acapulco is located, said two gunmen approached and killed two men at a beachside restaurant.
Police then chased the attackers down the beach, killing one and seriously wounding the other.
Video posted on social media showed people running down the beach as gunshots rang out. Others appeared to take cover behind tables or chairs.
Beachside shootings have occurred before in Acapulco, which has been plagued by gang violence since 2006.
