MEXICO CITY -- One person has died and 11 more have been wounded in a shooting at a bar in the Mexican resort town of Playa del Carmen.
Prosecutors in the Caribbean coast state of Quintana Roo say two gunmen entered the bar and opened fire with pistols late Monday.
The bar is located relatively far from the beach and Playa del Carmen's tourist zone
There was no immediate comment on the motive behind the shooting. Authorities have blamed past attacks in Playa del Carmen on street-level drug dealing.
In June, seven men died in a shooting in a low-income area of Playa del Carmen.
