Hotel Xcaret Mexico shooting: 1 Canadian citizen killed, 2 wounded at ​resort near Playa del Carmen: Police – KABC-TV

PLAYA DEL CARMEN, Mexico (KABC) — Three Canadian citizens were shot, one fatally, on Friday at a resort hotel near Playa del Carmen, a popular coastal vacation destination in Mexico, authorities said.

The triple shooting was confirmed by Lucio Hernández Gutiérrez, the region’s police chief, in a statement on Twitter. Hernández Gutiérrez said one of the victims died at a hospital.

The incident began as an argument among guests at the Hotel Xcaret Mexico, the police chief said. What started the verbal altercation was not immediately clear.

Authorities released photos of the suspected gunman. The images show a man in a light-blue track suit. In one photo he is apparently pointing a handgun, and in another he is wearing a black face mask and seems to be holding a mobile device. In a third image, he is sitting on a lounge chair.
