MEXICO CITY (AP) — Mexican state authorities say a Canadian tourist has been killed and two more wounded in a shooting at a hotel along Mexico's Caribbean coast.

Quintana Roo state security chief Lucio Hernández said via Twitter Friday that authorities were searching for a Hotel Xcaret guest in the shooting. He shared a photo of a man walking with a handgun.

Hernández said all three victims were taken to a hospital where one later died.

It is just the latest brazen act of violence along Mexico's famed Mayan Riviera, the crown jewel of its tourism industry. The Xcaret resort is south of Playa del Carmen.
