Police: 4 Killed, 9 Wounded in Shooting at Mexican Resort

An electronic music festival at a popular Mexican resort was reportedly shut down Monday after shots were fired, leaving at least four people dead and another nine injured, witnesses said. Details on the shooting were scarce, with conflicting reports on the number of those killed coming from witnesses on Twitter. The Associated Press cited a Mexican police officer as saying four people had been fatally shot, while DJ Jackmaster, a performer at the event, said “four or five” people had been killed. The police officer spoke on condition of anonymity, as he was not authorized to speak to the press. The attack happened at the BPM music festival near the Blue Parrot and The Jungle nightclubs in Playa del Carmen, about 45 miles from Cancun. NBC News cited an employee at the CostaMed hospital in Playa del Carmen saying two people were admitted early Monday with gunshot wounds, with one in grave condition. Several other people were injured in the shooting and had been sent to other hospitals, the employee said, speaking on condition of anonymity. Police have not yet offered official comment on the incident. It was also not immediately clear if there was one or multiple gunmen.
