6 young men killed in shooting in Mexican capital

“Gunmen killed six young men Thursday in a gritty neighborhood of the Mexican capital, an alarming attack in a city that has largely been spared the kind of mass shootings common in drug trafficking hot spots.

Mexico City Attorney General Miguel Angel Mancera said he did not know if drug gangs were involved in the middle-of-the night shooting in Tepito, a working-class neighborhood just north of the colonial center. Drug dealing is rampant there, but Mancera said there also have been problems with disputes among carjacking gangs.

Still, the attack fueled fears of cartel-style violence reaching Mexico City.”
