PLAYA DEL CARMEN, Quintana Roo.- An alleged attempted execution or warning for an alleged ‘extortion’ was registered on Thursday afternoon when an Italian resident, owner of the ‘Mama Mia’ pizzerias in Playa del Carmen, was attacked when he was on board his car parked almost in front of his business, on Avenida 30 almost corner with Avenida 34.
The attacker, a man who was identified as a taxi driver, fired at the Mazda vehicle’s windshield, without visible plates, but without injuring the victim.
The alleged hitman fled and, according to unofficial information, he was detained on the CTM avenue that marks the beginning of the Colosio colony, although the Italian refused to identify him until this afternoon.
The attacker would have been recognized by photos by other people, although they did not agree to go to identify him either.
The street, in the south-north lane, was closed by police to allow the experts to carry out their work of gathering information on the attack
