4 killed, 9 wounded in shooting at Mexico mariachi square

Five people have died after a shootout at Mexico City’s Garibaldi Plaza, a tourist hotspot known for its mariachis. TV footage and videos on the social media showed a heavy police presence in the area, with the crime scene cordoned off.

People in Plaza Garibaldi screamed and ran when they heard shots around 10pm on Friday, although some appeared unfazed by the gunfire.

At least five people were killed and eight others were wounded Friday night after gunmen disguised as mariachi musicians opened fire in Mexico City’s iconic square, sending residents and tourists fleeing as they head into the weekend’s Independence Day celebrations.

Investigators later found 60 empty bullet casings on the ground.

Garibaldi square is one of the main attractions of the capital of Mexico and has always attracted a lot of couples who come here to listen to the serenades performed by a Mariachi.

In another, brass instruments and melancholic voices fill the air as the flashing lights of police vehicles descend on the plaza.
