Gunmen have killed eight people at a volleyball game in a park in western Mexico.

At least five others were reportedly injured in the attack in Culiacan, the capital of Sinaloa state, on Friday.

The state is the home of the Sinaloa drug cartel.

Reports say the gunmen arrived with two people with covered faces who pointed out those to shoot.

The BBC reports the victims include players and spectators.
