Is Puerto Vallarta safe to visit in September?

I booked a vacation to Puerto Vallarta about a month ago, but I just got work that my friend's mother who's been going for forty years has cancelled her trip. Apparently there was an incident with a Canadian being killed, but that seems like a pretty isolated incident.
I also read that Princess cruise line has cancelled stops there, but that a lot of people were kind of surprised and thought it was a strategic business move rather than an actual safety precaution.
I'm not risk averse and realize that many US cities have higher crime rated, but I don't want to take my girlfriend to a dangerous place. We'd be staying in the actual city and wouldn't be doing much exploring outside the common tourist places.
Any MeFites have knowledge of the current situation?
