Three, including a baby, killed in Christmas day shooting in Acapulco

Three men and a baby have been killed in a Christmas day shooting in the Mexican resort city of Acapulco.

Police in the Pacific coast state of Guerrero said Wednesday that the men and 1-year-old boy were found shot to death at a home in the Arboledas neighborhood.

A fourth man suffered a bullet wound to the head in the Tuesday attack and was taken to a local hospital.

Witnesses told police that the victims were drinking outside the home when armed men pulled up in a taxi and opened fire.

The neighborhood is far from the city’s beaches and tourist zone.

Acapulco has been overcome by gang violence. A level four “do not travel” advisory has been issued by the U.S. State Department for the entire state.
