8 shark fishermen from same family shot dead
Gunmen burst into a home and killed eight shark fishermen from the same family in Mexico’s Pacific beach resort of Puerto Escondido. The armed group arrived in a vehicle, stormed the house and opened fire with high-calibre weapons in the southern state here. “Four men died at the scene and four more, also males, died in a hospital during treatment,” Joaquin Carrillo Ruiz, the chief prosecutor, said in Oaxaca. The victims were all fishermen who caught sharks, but the prosecutor’s office said investigators were looking at whether they were involved in illicit activities.
