This Friday, an ambush on Guanajuato State Public Security Forces resulted in the killing of at least five elements. The attack took place during the first hours of the day in Salamanca, a city where until three years ago, was far from the terror of drug violence.
The criminals ambushed the unit where the troops were traveling, on the Apaseo el Grande Jerécuaro highway, and after murdering in cold blood, they fled. There are currently no detainees.
Hours before the attack, a criminal group opened fire on four workers at Petróleos Mexicanos (Pemex), leaving three of them dead.
The attack was registered in the Bellavista neighborhood, in the municipality of Salamanca, where several subjects shot at the employees. Two of the victims died in the area, while one more lost his life in the hospital.
The region’s government regretted the events and called on the state administration to review the security strategy.
Today Guanajuato is ground-zero for territorial battles between the Santa Rosa de Lima Cartel, the Jalisco Cartel and the Sinaloa Cartel.
