A Canadian citizen has been hospitalized in Mexico following a shooting, a spokesperson from Global Affairs Canada has confirmed to CityNews.

Few details are available regarding the shooting.

It’s not clear where in Canada the victim is from or where the shooting took place.

In a statement to CityNews, the Global Affairs spokesperson said “consular officials in Mexico are in contact with local authorities and are providing consular services to the Canadian and the family.”

“To protect the privacy of the individual concerned, further details cannot be released.‎‎”

Last week, Mexican officials dispatched 5,000 additional federal police officers to several tourist cities after a series of violent incidents.

Some of the tourism destinations include Cancun, Los Cabos, Manzanillo and Colima.
