Mexican gunmen on a motorcycle shot and killed a female U.S. citizen as she dined at a popular taco restaurant in Mexico City. The two gunmen rode up on a motorcycle and stopped in front of the business and began shooting. The intended target was a man who was injured but survived the attack. 

The murder took place on Saturday early morning at an upscale taco restaurant in the ritzy Miguel Hidalgo section of Mexico City, information released by Mexico City’s Attorney General’s Office revealed (PGJDF).  

The woman died after being shot outside the taqueria restaurant ''El Califa''  in Paseo de las Palmas, near Sierra Gamón, in the Lomas de Chapultepec neighborhood of Mexico City on July 7, 2018. "El Califa"is part of a chain of popular upscale taco restaurants. 

The two gunmen were reportedly attempting to kill a 46-year-old man who was the doorman at a swanky bar in the Polanco neighborhood. 
However, stray bullets also struck the 27-year-old woman who was leaving the restaurant with her husband and another couple, the information from PGJDF revealed.  The woman’s identity has been confirmed as:  Tatiana Mirutenko, a U.S. citizen. The two couples were eating tacos after spending time at a nearby local bar.

The authorities claim that the victims left a bar in the area, where they argued with other people, who followed them to the taquería on a motorcycle and attacked them with bullets.

The body of the young woman was lying on the floor, in front of the door of the restaurant, where the authorities found irrigated 11 caps percussion; while the aggressors managed to escape to the State of Mexico.

The victim was treated by Red Cross paramedics, who confirmed the death at the scene, due to a gunshot wound to the head, and transferred the 46-year-old man to a hospital.

CDMX Procurator's Office (@PGJDF_CDMX) July 7, 2018:

The Attorney General's Office of the capital reported that it initiated an investigation folder for the murder and the injuries and that it has already notified the diplomatic representation of the United States for the notification of relatives of the young woman to whom the body will be delivered once the proceedings have been completed. .

"Investigators began the protocol of collaboration with authorities of the State of Mexico, with the purpose of arresting the accused and submitting them to the corresponding criminal process to avoid impunity," said the unit.

      Accidental deaths of these "soldiers" should be in another list, like collateral damages, and everybody buys what he wants, leave the tacos alone.

  4. Ok, let me get this straight. Drinking at a local bar, gets into an argument with someone, goes eats tacos after being followed and accidentally shot, instead of the 46 year old doorman. What??

    1. The 46 year old doorman was the one who got into an argument at the bar. Tourist was a completely random bystander

    2. Interesting how quickly the federales say that it was the tourists that got into an argument and don't say anything about the door guy. Mexico doesn't want to look incompetent!!!

    3. Ridiculous! Poor piece of reporting devoid of logic. I doubt the doorman was the target! Drunk, argumentative tourists, not knowing their environment. Don't piss people off, if you do, bless them and go on. You won't win the argument with the authorities after you are confronted. Door man my ass! 46 year old target must have been working at the bar and taco stand. Sure . . . .

    4. She went to Clemson, and was hired by a pharmaceutical company in the Silicon Valley.These companies vet thier future employees. Drunken argumentive tourist behavior is highly unlikely from the deceased. Not paying couta or doorman causing this is more plausible.

      Who knows? Wrong place wrong time. Anything could have happened.

  5. Bet there are dozens if not hundreds of foreing nationals shot and killed in the U.S. every year yet those stories do not make headlines!
    Of course if foreingners complain about their murder rates in this country conservatives/racists would tell them to return to their own country rather than having to hear and or deal with the situation.

    3. Always an excuse about what happens in US vs. Mexico. One does not justify the other, but let that happen in the US and see the outcome is over time. Quit using US as an equal or. US has law, security, Mexico has neither. Extradition to US, whether Mayo, Chapo, Trevions, Cardenas, etc. is the biggest fear! Not Mexico itself. Quit blaming the US for endless consumption, and place it on greed where it belongs compadres

    1. The shooters escaped to Estado de Mexico on a bike,
      typical heating up the place, there may be a lot of business on Mexico City, where arguments over nothing at all abound.

    2. 5:04 dinner was had,
      the shooting happened Later at Another Place.
      The idea seems to be "to heat up the plasa".
      Of course, with things the way they are, the police corporations keep their agents in their delegations waiting to be called to emergencies, there is no strategy for quicker intervention or security at the public places, AND that may be the problem, Private Security Agencies love it when they have their Mandatory Contracts in their pockets.

  9. So, is it just by chance that she worked for Nektar, which is about to produce a pain medication promoted as an alternative to opioids? Is the fact that she's a Ukraine by birth of any consequence? Just wondering.
    Why in the world would sicarios want to smoke a lowly doorman?
    This doesn't quite smell like a stray bullet deal.
    But then again, who knows?

    5. 7:26 - Nobody forces Mexican Narcos to be the main supplier of drugs to the U.S. and other parts of the world. Nobody forces them to commit brutal and heinous acts. Its greed, pure greed.

  12. Sorry to sound callous, but there are no accidents. God has stamped each of us with an expiration date. Your shelf life is not in your hands. Life itself is fraught with risk. Millions have died doing mundane behavior such as driving a car. I'm from New Orleans. During Mardi Gras, tourists are robbed and killed all the time. Sorry for this lady but it was her time to go. My time will come just like everyone else.

    1. JamesBrown - Sorry but i have to disagree. So everything that's happened was meant to happen? That takes all freedom and free will away from life. It gives people a cop out to doing horrible things. It takes responsibility away from the experience of life.

    2. @7:56 A bullet in the head is preferable to death by prostate cancer. In the terminal stages patients sometimes vomit feces. What about being burned alive? Sometimes God looks after you and gives you a quick death.
