Eight people from same family murdered in Mexico

OAXACA, Mexico, (APP - UrduPoint / Pakistan Point News - 20th july,2016) - Gunmen burst into a home and killed eight members of the same family in Mexico's Pacific beachresort of Puerto Escondido, authorities said Tuesday. The armed group arrived in a vehicle late Monday, sormed the house and opened fire with high-caliber weapons, officials said.

"Four men died at the scene and four more, also males, died in a hospital during treatment," Joaquin Carrillo Ruiz, chief prosecutor of Oaxaca state, told AFP. The victims were all fishermen who caught sharks, but the prosecutor's office said in a statement that investigators were looking at whether they were involved in other activities at sea.
