MEXICO CITY – A shooting erupted at a food court in Mexico City’s international airport on Monday and officials said two policemen were killed.
A witness said the shooters were also wearing police-like uniforms.
The shootings occurred at the airport’s Terminal 2, near the area where vehicles drop off passengers.
Three shots rang out at first, said witness Israel Lopez, a 23-year-old Mexico City student who had gone to the airport to see off a friend. Lopez didn’t see who those first shots were directed at, but then the gunfire came closer.
“We were in the food court, and some policemen came in and started shooting at another policeman who was on the floor,” Lopez said by telephone. “We dove to the floor and covered ourselves with chairs.”
