  • American tourist killed by stray bullet in Mexico CityMore

Tatiana Mirutenko was in Mexico with her husband, James Hoover, celebrating their first anniversary when she was hit by what appeared to be a stray bullet from a shooting at a taco restaurant in the wealthy neighborhood of Lomas de Chapultepec in the capital city.

- Friends, family, and co-workers of a 27-year-old San Francisco woman shot and killed in Mexico City over the weekend are mourning her loss and remembering her as a lovely, smart, amusing and talented sister, daughter, and wife.

Mexican authorities say the 47-year-old man who was being targeted was injured but survived.

Mirutenko, who was with her husband and two friends, was taken to the hospital, where she died.

"A year ago, we were selecting flowers for the wedding", said Wasyl Mirutenko, the dead woman's father, in an interview with ABC.

Mirutenko was a senior investor relations analyst for a San Francisco company that issued a statement calling her a "bright and passionate rising star", the station reported.


"We extend our honest condolences to friends and family members of the deceased", the Bureau of Consular Affairs said in a statement.

The 46-year-old doorman survived the shooting, U.S. media report. As a mother, we always say things, but she inspired me to be better. The U.S. Bureau of Consular Affairs confirmed the death and released the victim's name, Tatiana Mirutenko, in a statement. Mirutenko's body will be returning to the US tomorrow.

They described her "incredible work ethic" and passion for her job as news of her death emerged on Monday.

"Out of respect for the family during this hard time, we have no further comment", the official said.

A young couple's trip to Mexico to celebrate their first anniversary has turned deadly. The government also warns tourists to "exercise increased caution" when visiting Cancun, Cozumel, Playa del Carmen and Mexico City.

"It is with very heavy hearts that we received the devastating news about our Nektar team member and colleague Tatiana Mirutenko", Nektar vice president Jennifer Ruddock said. "She will be incredibly missed by all of us at Nektar Therapeutics".
