Cancun, Mexico, Jan 28 (efe-epa).- Three people were killed and four others wounded in an attack on a bar in the Mexican Caribbean resort city of Cancun, officials said.
The attack occurred around 8:40 pm Saturday and targeted the Oasis bar in Cancun's El Crucero district, the Quintana Roo state Attorney General's Office said.
The gunmen entered the bar and opened fire on patrons, investigators said, adding that no suspects have been arrested.
On Jan. 10, two people were killed and seven others wounded in a similar attack on the La Palapa de Chuki restaurant.
