Violence leaves 3 dead in Mexico City

MEXICO CITY (AP) — The Mexico City Attorney General's Office says that two people were killed by gunfire outside a bar in the capital and authorities found the missing head from a dismembered body discovered the day before.

A statement from the office said gunmen opened fire on 53-year-old Ruperto Acosta Diaz and 21-year-old Luis Alberto Segura Soto outside the bar Static in Iztapalapa early Sunday, killing both men. Acosta was a bouncer and Segura a singer at the bar.

The statement said Acosta had prevented two men from entering the bar the day before and they later returned and shot the bouncer.

On Saturday, a dismembered body was found in plastic bags in the southern district of Coyoacan. Authorities said they found the victim's head nearby Sunday.

No arrests have been made.
