Cartel gunfire erupted on the beach of a high-end resort in Cancun, Mexico, on Thursday. Hundreds of tourists, including Americans, fled the beach area after a shootout between rival gangs left two drug dealers dead.
“Dozens and dozens of shots,” eyewitness Troy Petenbrink told TODAY on Friday. “Everyone came running off the beach towards us. It was rather surreal.”
Mike Sington, a guest at the Hyatt Ziva Riviera Cancun, tweeted, “I’ve never been so scared, literally shaking.”
