The officers were walking on the ground in reconnaissance work of the place and were shot by the armed men.
According to the authorities’ report, a total of nine people were killed, all of them armed, wearing bulletproof vests and wearing military-style clothing.
The personnel informed the Office of the Attorney General of the Republic, Miguel Alemán delegation, so that they could come to take cognizance and attest to the bodies.
As to which criminal group they belong to, at the moment it is unknown.
The city, as well as other municipalities in the area known as “la frontera chica”, has been the scene of strong confrontations between armed groups fighting to maintain control of the area.
On the one hand, there is the Gulf Cartel, which for decades has had its influence, while the Los Zetas split known as the Cartel Del Noreste and a cell of the Jalisco Nueva Generación Cartel seek to move, starring in strong confrontations in which they have even claimed the lives of innocent people.
