Gunmen dressed as traditional mariachi musicians have killed at least three people and wounded at least seven in Mexico City.
The armed men opened fire at a road crossing on the edge of the Plaza Garibaldi, a major tourist attraction packed with mariachi bars, police said.
The gunmen then fled from the scene on motorbikes.
Plaza Garibaldi borders the notorious Tepito district, home to the violent La Union drugs gang.
Tepito has suffered a wave of violence over the last month after the gang’s presumed leader, Roberto Moyado Esparza – or El Betito – was arrested.
The number of killings in the city, the Mexican capital, has surged since 2014.
