American citizen shot in Mexico City

Tatiana Mirutenko, 27, was shot while exiting a restaurant in the Lomas de Chapultepec neighborhood of the Mexico capital at about 5:50 a.m. on Monday July 9th. The neighborhood is known as a nice area and a popular destination for tourists.

Mirutenko, who was with her husband and two friends, was taken to the hospital, where she died. The 46-year-old man who was targeted in the shooting was injured. The AG said he worked as a bouncer in Polanco, the neighborhood just east of Lomas de Chapultepec.

“A year ago, we were selecting flowers for the wedding. Today we were looking at flowers for the funeral,” Wasyl Mirutenko, Tatiana’s father, told San Francisco ABC station KGO.

A manhunt is still on for the two alleged shooters.

“The analysis of the surveillance cameras, by the investigation police, allowed us to know that the aggressors fled to the State of Mexico,” the attorney general said.
