|Site of shooting in October|
The warning says to "avoid all unnecessary travel to the city of Tepic, Nayarit. Exercise extreme caution on the non-toll portion of the Route 15 bypass around Tepic."
Tepic is north of Puerto Vallarta. Here is a link to a story about what happened Oct. 27: Tepic shooting
Given that this is the month when many people are heading south along the highway from the U.S. border to La Manzanilla - passing right through Tepic or around it on the highway bypass - the warning couldn't be much more timely.
