Gunmen killed eight people and wounded two others early Wednesday in Bacalar, a town in the Mexican state of Quintana Roo, state prosecutors said.

The victims were traveling in an SUV with the tag of the Yucatan state, when they were stopped by gunmen and shot dead, the Office of the Quintana Row Attorney General said.Both of the injured were rushed to a hospital in Bacalar, where the authorities have tightened security.


The AG's office said that the emergency call center received the first call about shooting at 7 in the morning.The shooting took place on a road between the city of Limón and the town of Felipe Carrillo Puerto.

This area is close to the intersection outside the Chachoben archaeological site, barely a kilometer (0.62 miles) outside Limons, which is a city within the city of Bakalar, which is popular among tourists.

In Quintana Roo, according to official reports, at least five gangs are mainly fighting for control of the sale, focusing on Cancun and Playa del Carmen.Increase in violence in resort cities, where firing and gangland hits have taken off, has removed tourists.
