Shootout at famed Mexico City mariachi plaza leaves 5 dead

CNN notes that Mexico City’s mariachi scene traces its roots to a bar in Plaza Garibaldi. The former Mexico City mayor, who takes office December 1, has vowed that new strategies under the city’s incoming mayor, Claudia Sheinbaum, will be effective.

The five assailants opened fire with rifles and handguns shortly before 10:00 pm Friday (0300 GMT Saturday) as the downtown plaza was filled with partiers enjoying the September 16 Independence Day weekend celebrations.

Videos on social media and television showed a heavy police presence, with the attack site cordoned off and yellow markers where the bullet casings fell, but dozens of people continued to drink and listen to live music nearby.

"We could hear more shots, and yells from people outside who were running in fear", he said.

A foreigner, who was not identified, was among the eight people wounded, the prosecutor’s office said.
