During the early hours of Sunday, in the middle of Morelos Street, a 29-year-old boy was shot in the chest after a fight in a local club. The young victim lost his life minutes later, without the person or persons responsible being captured.
The crime took place in front of dozens of people who saw the event unfold on the streets of the city center where there are always tourist police and municipal transits, yet at that time there was no surveillance.
The murder occurred only one block south of the place where, earlier this year, 3 other men were shot and no arrests were made.
The center of the city, which should be the safest place because it is the image and the meeting point of locals and tourists, again stained with blood and a reminder that the security strategy is failing.
Puerto Vallarta is, according to statistics, one of the safest cities in the country, however, murders, femicides, home theft, and robbery are still being committed every day.
