A total of 13 people have been killed in the city of Minatitlan in the Mexican Gulf coast state of Veracruz, Reuters reported.
“Seven men, five women and a child died in the shooting, which occurred close to Minatitlan’s oil refinery, one of six run by state oil firm Petroleos Mexicanos (Pemex). Four other people were injured, the state government said in a statement,” the source noted.
A group of armed men broke into the bar and asked to call the owner of the institution. Then the attackers opened fire on those present and fled. Their motives are still unknown.
