Three Dead and Six Wounded in Mexico Party Shooting

PUEBLA, Mexico Three people were killed and at least six others were injured in a shooting during a dance in central Mexico.

A group of hooded men burst into the celebration at around 3am local time and opened fire, local authorities said on Thursday.

They were armed with guns and indiscriminately fired into the crowd of revelers before fleeing in vehicles.

The dance was taking place in the Santa Margarita neighborhood between Amozoc and Puebla.

Mexican Red Cross treated the victims and transferred the most seriously injured to nearby hospitals, where they were being treated for bullet wounds.

The motive for the shooting is unconfirmed but authorities believe it could have been a targeted attack.

Other crimes related to criminal gangs and fuel theft have recently been reported in the area.

In May, in Puebla, there was a proposed ban on these types of dances, which have previously seen acts of violence.

After demonstrations and complaints the proposed ban was withdrawn.

The popular festivities, known as sonideros, consist of massive parties with music, alcohol and dancing.
