Death Toll in Mexico City Shooting Reaches Six

MEXICO CITY – A man wounded in last weekend’s mass shooting in Mexico City’s Garibaldi square died on Monday, boosting the death toll from the incident to six, the prosecutor’s office said.

“The initial enquiries allowed us to learn that the victims were attacked by five individuals who fled on three motorcycles,” the office said in a statement.

The capital mayor, Jose Ramon Amieva, told reporters Monday that authorities know the identities of the perpetrators.

“We have the positive identification and the possible location of the persons. We are right now in the location zone carrying out the appropriate operations,” he said.

The shooting took place Friday night in front of a restaurant on the square, which is a popular spot for mariachi bands catering to the tourist trade.

Authorities attribute a recent rise in violence in Mexico City to clashes among local gangs, including Union de Tepito, Fuerza Anti Union, and the Tlahuac Cartel, who are allied with larger criminal organizations operating in other parts of the country.

According to figures from Semaforo Delictivo, an NGO that monitors crime in Mexico, the number of homicides in Mexico City increased 12 percent in the first half of 2018 compared with the same period last year.
