Two people are dead and three are wounded following a shooting in the Mexican resort city of Cancun.

Prosecutors in the Caribbean state of Quintana Roo say the shootings occurred at a house in a low-income neighbourhood, far from the beachside hotel zone.

The state prosecutor’s office said Monday that a pistol and drugs were seized at the home. Five people were arrested.

The shootings follow a dramatic attack on a pickup truck Saturday on one of Cancun’s main boulevards, closer to the tourist zone.

Attackers opened fire on the truck at a stoplight with an assault rifle, killing three of the occupants and wounding a fourth.

And on Saturday, assailants gunned down a police officer further south on the coast in the resort town of Playa del Carmen.Two people are dead and three are wounded following a shooting in the Mexican resort of Cancun.
