Officials say gunmen who killed eight people at a pickup volleyball game in the Mexican state of Sinaloa were targeting the men at the game.
Sinaloa prosecutor Marco Antonio Higuera said while it has not be ruled out that the volleyball players and spectators were caught in a crossfire, witnesses have told authorities the assailants arrived with two people with covered faces who pointed out to the gunmen who to shoot.
Higuera said Saturday the attackers "knew perfectly who they were going to kill" and that the attack was part of a conflict between rival groups.
Seven people were wounded in Friday's attack in the state capital, Culiacan.
No motive has been given, but Sinaloa is the home of the Sinaloa cartel led by Joaquin "El Chapo" Guzman.
