Narco Blog: Gunmen Shoot Up Mall In Cabo

Hundreds of people were terrorized for about two hours inside a shopping mall in the resort town Saturday while security forces traded sporadic gunfire with armed men in the parking lot and then searched the stores for suspects. Los Cabos , Baja California Sur , is one of the top tourist destinations in Mexico. The incident began when 10 heavily armed men burst into the Soriana store, where there were many people shopping and nearly one hundred working.

No one was injured in the gun battle, but some cars and entrance doors to the shopping center were damaged by the gunfire.

Authorities said the shooting at the Plaza Sendero shopping center erupted when police confronted the armed men in the parking lot about 1 p.m. Police ordered shoppers and employees to stay inside during the battle and the later search of the mall.
