ACAPULCO: Mexican authorities say eight people were killed and five more bodies found in a clandestine grave in Acapulco on a particularly bloody day for the violence-plagued resort city.

Guerrero state security spokesman Roberto Alvarez says Sunday "was a horrible day."

It began early with the discovery of the bodies of three young men with tourniquets around their necks and signs of torture.

Later in the morning, a shootout broke out between police and gunmen on a central avenue. One suspect was killed in an ensuing chase.

Still before noon, armed men stormed into a bar and shot a man and a woman who were drinking there.

Police caught the aggressors, who reported the existence of the clandestine grave in the bar.

In the afternoon, gunmen chased and killed two men.
