MEXICO CITY:  A law enforcement official says unidentified assailants opened fire on an amateur soccer match on the outskirts of the Mexican Pacific Coast resort of Acapulco, killing three people.

The official in Acapulco said one other person was seriously wounded in the attack. The official was not authorized to be quoted by name.

The motive in Sunday's attack is still under investigation. The dead and injured were apparently spectators at the match.

Shell casings recovered at the scene indicate that assault rifles were used in the attack.

Acapulco and especially outlying neighborhoods far from the beaches have been the scene of persistent drug gang killings in recent years.
