British expat shot and partner killed after armed intruders smash into her home

A 32-year-old British woman living in Mexico was reportedly shot after armed criminals broke into her home on Friday. The young woman was allegedly left seriously injured in the shooting that took place near the Mexican Riviera Maya Caribbean coastline. 

Authorities rushed to the jungle ranch in Lazaro Cardenas where the woman lives after receiving a distress call. 

The expat reportedly suffered gunshot wounds and was airlifted to a hospital in the resort of Playa del Carmen to be treated. 

A man, initially described by local media as British but now understood to be a Polish national educated in Germany, was reportedly shot dead.

He is believed to have been the partner of the wounded UK expat and to have co-owned with her the ranch. 

State prosecutors in Quintana Roo, the state where Lazaro Cardenas is located, have confirmed they are investigating the incident.

A spokesman said: “Quintana Roo’s State Prosecution Service has launched an investigation into an incident that occurred in the early hours of Friday in which two foreigners were attacked with firearms in a jungle area of the municipality of Lazaro Cardenas.” 

Prosecutors haven’t shared official information about the casualties and haven’t yet confirmed their nationalities. 

No arrests are yet thought to have been made.  

The ranch where the shooting occurred is known locally as La Esperanza, which in English menas Hope.
