Translated by Fulano from an article in Noticaribe.com.mx

Cancún, Mexico, November 28, 2018 – An attack last Wednesday night in the Paseos del Mar subdivision, in Region 251 left one person dead and three wounded. This also broke the symbolic ceiling of more than 500 murders in Cancún so far in 2018, a total never before seen in this tourist destination.

With the three murders today, the murder total is 501.

[Note: With only one month left in 2018, and a population in Cancún of 661,176, the annualized homicide rate is 83 per 100,000 population.]
