Mexico subway gunman kills two

A man has shot at police and members of the public in a subway station in Mexico City, killing two people and injuring at least five.

The gunman was writing on the walls of Balderas station when a police officer confronted him, Attorney General Miguel Angel Mancera said.

The man shot the officer and a civilian who tried to stop him, then ran to a subway train where he kept firing until other police officers captured him.
