A woman originally from the Chicago area was shot and killed in Mexico, where she and her husband were celebrating their first wedding anniversary.

Tatiana Mirutenko, 27, was shot while exiting a restaurant in the Lomas de Chapultepec neighborhood of the Mexico capital at about 5:50 a.m.

Mexico City's prosecutor's office said Mirutenko was leaving the restaurant early Saturday when gunmen on a motorcycle fired at a man identified by authorities as a bouncer at a nearby bar.

Photos on Mirutenko's Instagram account show a woman with a vibrant smile who loved dogs, good food with friends and her new husband.

Mirutenko played Division I volleyball at Clemson University and later worked as a senior investor relations analyst at Nektar Therapeutics in San Francisco's Mission Bay district. We extend our honest condolences to friends and family members of the deceased.

Her death is the latest in dozens this year across the country which have prompted warnings from the USA government to tourists. "Today we were looking at flowers for the funeral", said Wasyl Mirutenko, Tatiana's father.

'She would give 200 percent. Mirutenko's body will be returning to the USA tomorrow. She'll be flown to Chicago where she'll be buried on Saturday An official with the U.S. Bureau of Consular Affairs confirmed the death. As a mother, we always say things, but she inspired me to be better. It was heartbreaking to all of us in the Sports Performance family. "I don't know how I'm going to survive without her, but with her memory and knowing how wonderful she was to every single person that she ever came across, I will use that to incorporate into my life to be as great as she was to honor her memory".

In March, the State Department issued a security alert for Playa del Carmen, a popular Mexican resort city on the Caribbean coast, saying the U.S. Embassy in Mexico City had received "credible information" about a threat to the city.

"We were devastated to hear the news of Tatiana's death". Her coworkers said she was a "bright" and "passionate rising star" with an "incredibly strong work ethic". "She will be incredibly missed by all of us at Nektar Therapeutics", Ruddock said.
