The popular Sonoran beach town of San Carlos was the site of deadly violence over the weekend.

A private security guard was seriously wounded in an early Sunday morning shooting at the entrance to Bartina 64, a second-story bar in San Carlos near San Francisco Beach. The 48-year-old victim — identified only as Ricardo by state authorities in a release — later died of his injuries in neighboring Guaymas.

A burned BMW and a Volkswagen Jetta with bullet holes were found nearby.

The state Attorney's Office is investigating the incident, as well as a separate one Sunday in which three men were found dead near a welding business in Guaymas.
