Gun Shots on the Beach: No Connection to Organized Crime

Real Acapulco News - 16 July, 2011

(Acapulco, ElSur 16 July) Yesterday a lone individual wandered onto the beach at El Morro (near the Diana traffic circle) and fired several rounds from a pistol, wounding one tourist from Mexico City. Then he fled. The man was apparently deranged, having just attempted to rob a store on the Costera, and came out on the beach wearing a t-shirt and shorts, waving the pistol. Police were dispatched to the scene, but the perpetrator evaded capture. Investigators opined that it was a random event, caused by a single felon, either drunk or mentally disturbed, and it had none of the hallmarks of an incident provoked by organized crime or drug gangs.
