(RoyalPatriot.com )- Saturday evening, in an area of Mexico plagued by warfare between rival drug gangs, a shooting at a bar resulted in twelve individuals’ deaths.
The city’s Secretary of Citizen Safety disclosed that the shooting occurred at a pub in Irapuato, in the state of Guanajuato.
According to the statement, there were twelve people in all who passed away as a result of their injuries. The incident happened around 8 p.m.
The local media reported that a group of heavily armed guys entered the pub and started firing on the patrons inside.
The assailant’s faces were hidden from view.
According to reports, patrons inside the pub attempted to flee the building via the establishment’s rear door as neighbors heard the gunshots.
The shooting in Guanajuato on Saturday night is the state’s second violent incident in recent weeks.
In September, a pool hall in the neighborhood of Tarimoro was the scene of a shooting that resulted in the deaths of ten persons.
The terrorists responsible for the assault in September filmed the victims of their crime and shared the footage on several social networking websites.
According to Reuters, the investigation into what prompted the shooting on Saturday has come to no conclusions.
Wars fought between rival drug gangs have often used the state as a battlefield.
The state is a significant location for automobile manufacturers, as seen by the presence of many assembly factories in the area.
According to Border Report, a number of criminal organizations are engaged in a power struggle in an attempt to establish a monopoly on the lucrative fentanyl trade.
Michael Ballard, director of intelligence for Global Guardian, stated that a lot of it is being manufactured in states controlled by these cartels and states like Colima, where the precursor chemicals are coming from China.
Ballard said, “Where a lot of it is being manufactured is in states controlled by these cartels and states like Colima where the precursor chemicals are coming in from China.”
According to him, both the Sinaloa cartel and the Jalisco New Generation cartel are working toward achieving dominance over the other.
Because these two organizations are engaging in this trade, battling with one another, there has recently been a lot of bloodshed in the western side of Mexico.
According to Ballard, Sinaloa is home to competing groups, who are also engaged in combat with the authorities.
