Mexican hotel massacre leaves 11 dead and five injured

Nearly a dozen people were killed and five injured after a group of armed and hooded gunmen stormed a hotel in the central Mexican city of Celaya on Monday.

Local news station Telemundo 52 said that at least 11 people had been confirmed to have died and at least five people were injured after approximately 15 armed men stormed the Gala hotel and bar and opened fire in Celaya, a city in the Mexican state of Guanajuato.

Authorities say the massacre started at about 10pm local time and more than 50 rounds were fired at the group of hotel guests and employees standing in and around the hotel and bar.

Storefronts close to the shooting were also burned out and suspected to have been destroyed with homemade bombs, local authorities reported.

Upon entering the hotel, the agencies initially found four people dead (two men and two women, none of their ages revealed), and when they surveilled the hotel bar, they found an additional five women and one man dead.
