Mexico City authorities are investigating the death of a US tourist killed by what appeared to be a stray bullet in a shooting at a taco restaurant in a wealthy capital neighborhood. Mexican authorities say gunmen on a motorcycle were aiming at a bouncer at a nearby bar when one of their bullets struck Mirutenko in the head.

The news station reported that the couple left for Mexico City on July 3 and was on a quest to dine at as many Michelin star restaurants as they could.

Tatiana Mirutenko of San Francisco was leaving a restaurant with her husband and two friends Saturday morning when she was shot. "I'd give my life if she could just come back", she told KGO-TV.

Mirutenko's parents live in the Chicago area.

She and her husband, James Hoover, were married at a church in the Ukrainian Village neighborhood and held their reception in Lincoln Park, her family said.

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

Mirutenko worked as a senior investor relations analyst at Nektar Therapeutics in San Francisco.

"She always went out of her way to make me feel special", Roma said. "I don't know how I'm going to survive without her, but with her memory and knowing how fantastic 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".

Jennifer Ruddock, a spokeswoman for Nektar Therapeutics, described Ms Mirutenko as "a bright and passionate rising star". "She was always willing to help on any project across the company and had an incredibly strong work ethic".

'Today we were looking at flowers for the funeral, ' her heartbroken father Wasyl told ABC.

"Many throughout Nektar, and outside the company, valued her positive energy, insight and sheer enthusiasm for life", the company said in a statement.

The young woman's body is being flown back to Chicago on Wednesday for a burial Saturday in west suburban Bloomingdale.

In March, the State Department issued a statement urging travellers to Mexico to exercise "increased caution due to crime".
