Mexican authorities say gunmen killed five people and wounded five more in a bar in the Caribbean resort city of Cancun.

Quintana Roo state prosecutors said that the attack took place in a club called La Kuka, located on a main avenue in central Cancun. It's about 4 miles away from the seaside tourist hotel zone.

Prosecutors said Saturday that four men carrying a long gun and three handguns entered and opened fire. Two of the injured were in critical condition.

Violence has been rising in Cancun and Quintana Roo as a whole.

Last month federal authorities reported that 774 people had been killed in the state last year, more than double the 359 killings recorded in 2017.
