Mariachi shooting in Mexico City claims 6th victim
MEXICO CITY (AP) — Mexico City authorities say a sixth person has died as a result of a weekend shooting by men dressed as mariachi musicians who attacked a restaurant at a popular plaza in the capital.
The prosecutor’s office says the latest victim was a 32-year-old man.
The office said in a statement Monday that the preliminary investigation indicates five men shot 13 people at a restaurant on Garibaldi Plaza, an iconic tourist destination where mariachi bands play. Four people died at the scene and two others died later in hospitals.
The attack happened late Friday at the start of Mexico’s Independence Day weekend, with the shooters escaping on three motorcycles.
