One person has been killed and four others wounded

One person has been killed and four others wounded in a shootout between armed gunmen and the police in downtown Cancun, Mexico.
The shooting took place about 10 miles (16 kilometers) from Cancun's world popular tourist area when police went to help a man claiming to be followed by gunmen, state prosecutor Luis Canche said.
The assailants entered a house and began shooting and setting off grenades. The man killed had a grenade in hand, Canche said.
''This is clearly related to organized crime,'' Canche said.
He also reported that the man who called the police and three other people, including two women, were critically injured.
Colombian drug traffickers usually drop off cocaine at Mexico's Yucatan peninsula, where Cancun is located, and then the Mexican cartels transfer the narcotics to the US.
