Gunmen killed 12 people in a bar in the central Mexican city of Irapuato in Guanajuato state on Saturday evening, Mexican authorities reported.

Guanajuato was the scene of a mass shooting less than a month ago when a gunman killed 10 people.

That attack also took place in a bar in the town of Tarimoro, some 60 miles (96 kilometers) to the southeast of Irapuato.

Mexico has one of the highest homicide rates in the world. Earlier this month, an attack on a southern town of San Miguel Totolapan claimed the lives of at least 18 people, including the town's mayor. President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador has been unable to curb the killings despite coming to power on a pledge to reduce the record levels of gang violence.


Police believe Saturday’s attack took place when an armed group entered the bar in the city of Irapuato at around 8 pm (0100 GMT) and opened fire on customers and staff.

At least six men and six women were killed, and three others were injured, the municipal government said in a statement, without specifying the identity of the attackers or their motives.

The body of one victim was found outside next to a motorcycle, while the rest of those killed were discovered inside the bar, police said.

The assailants are being hunted by state police, the army, the prosecutor’s office and the National Guard, the municipal government said.

The attack is Guanajuato’s second mass shooting in less than a month.

In September, armed attackers killed 10 people in a pool hall in the state’s Tarimoro municipality.
