Two men died on Thursday near the Mexican city of Cancun in a shooting outside of a luxury resort. 

The incident took place outside the Hyatt Ziva Riviera Cancun resort in Puerto Morelos, south of the popular “hotel zone” of Cancun, according to multiple reports. 

The attorney general’s office in the state of Quintana Roo confirmed on social media that the confrontation was between alleged groups of drug dealers in Puerto Morelos. Two of the men died at the scene of the shooting, and there were no other serious injuries. 

The police warned earlier that a group of men carrying long guns were seen in the area of the nearby Azul Beach hotel, according to multiple reports. 

The shooting quickly caused chaos for tourists in the area. One man, Mike Sington, shared videos of hotel staff and tourists gathered inside the resort.

Sington shared that people were “hugging each other and crying” during the incident. 

Two foreign tourists were killed in crossfire of a drug-gang shootout last month in Mexico’s Tulum. One of the women was born in India but lived in the United States, while the other was from Germany. Multiple people were injured in the shooting.
