MEXICO CITY (AP) — The Mexican colonial city of San Miguel de Allende has been rocked by a brazen shooting in which two men died after gunmen opened fire on a funeral procession.
City police said five people were wounded in the attack Thursday. All were reported in stable condition.
Mayor Luis Alberto Villarreal wrote: "We will not allow violence and crime here. There will be justice."
The city is a popular tourist destination which had largely been spared the spate of violence, killings and extortions that have rocked other parts of the north-central state of Guanajuato.
The shooting occurred on the city's outskirts, relatively far from the downtown colonial-era churches and plazas.
In July, gunmen also killed two police officers on a street in San Miguel de Allende in broad daylight.
