(Acapulco, 16 July) Just after midnight on Saturday, two persons were murdered while sitting in “El Zorrito,” a popular restaurant on Acapulco’s Costera Miguel Alemán. The gunmen entered the restaurant with 9mm pistols and AR-15 assault rifles. They shot José Juan Flores Fragoso and Saúl Laureano Nava, both state government employees. The event had all the earmarks of a drug gang “hit.” Fifteen shell casings were found at the scene. Two others were wounded by gunfire in the incident and taken to the hospital. They were not identified in press reports. One was a 38-year-old female from Mexico City. It is not known if the other was a local, tourist, or a person connected with the two who were murdered. The gunmen fled the scene and escaped pursuit.
