Gunmen murdered 11 people attending a party in Hidalgo, a state in central Mexico, security officials told media on Thursday. The gunmen, who were “apparently wearing hoods”, killed “seven men and four women”, Hidalgo Public Safety Secretariat spokesmen said, Efe news reported.
Several children survived the shooting early Thursday at a house in the city of Tizayuca, security officials said without providing figures on the number of survivors.
The emergency services centre received a call at around 12:10 AM for assistance, the secretariat said.
Police and paramedics arriving on the scene found “11 dead people inside the house,” security officials said.
Investigators are gathering evidence at the crime scene, the secretariat said.
