Mexican Sicarios Use a Jet Ski for Beach Front Targeted Killing in Acapulco

“As holidaymakers sunned themselves on the golden sand of Acapulco beach, a man carrying a 9mm pistol swam up to the shore, shot a beachwear seller three times in the chest, and calmly made his way back to the jet ski where his accomplice was waiting and disappeared around the rocky headland to the west. 

The new, ‘James Bond-style’ assassination is the new face of crime on Mexico’s Pacific Coast, where cartel killers are murdering gang rivals in tourist areas – and escape from the beach on high powered jet skis to get away from police.”
