Puerto Morelos, Quintana Roo — Another man has been found shot to death in the small seaside tourist town of Puerto Morelos.

The normally quiet town has recorded numerous shootings over this past year. The latest is a local taxi driver who was found shot dead inside his unit.

The report of a man dead in a taxi was reported at around 6:00 a.m. Friday. Police arrived then they found the taxi ran into bushes. Inside was a deceased male behind the steering wheel of the taxi.

Authorities proceeded to cordon off the area until the arrival of criminal experts.

After several minutes, agents of the Ministerial Police and criminal experts arrived at the place to raise the unit and the body to transfer it to the Forensic Medical Service (Semefo).

More than 30 killings have taken place in the normally peaceful town already this year.
