Third mass shooting in 3 days kills 6 people in southern Mexico

ACAPULCO, Mexico – Six more people have been gunned down in Mexico’s southern state of Guerrero, the third such mass shooting attack in the last three days.

The state prosecutors’ office said Tuesday the bodies were found scattered around a burned-out taxi and a truck on a rural road.

One of those killed near the Guerrero city of Chilapa was a relative of the city’s former police chief.

That police chief resigned amid accusations he was linked to a drug gang and his son had recently been killed.

In attacks on Sunday, at least 12 people were killed at clandestine cockfight in the Guerrero town of Cuajinicuilapa. Residents said the toll may be as high as 16.

In the resort of Acapulco, gunmen opened fire on an amateur soccer match, killing three people.
