Gunmen tossed a grenade at an ambulance and then opened its doors to kill a patient who had narrowly survived an earlier shooting, as paramedics ran for their lives early Friday.
Vehicles carrying four masked gunmen cut off the ambulance around 2 a.m. as it was carrying the 23-year-old man to a hospital in Morelia, the state capital, according to a report from the Michoacan state prosecutor’s office.
Assailants tossed a fragmentation grenade at the ambulance, setting it on fire, and the two paramedics ran away, according to the police report. Then they opened the back doors and fired on the man and his wife, who was accompanying him.
