The Attorney General of the State of Michoacán (FGE) reported that the trail of murders began at 4:35 p.m. (local time) with the murder of two men in a vehicle repair shop in the Miguel Hidalgo neighborhood.
The hit man shot two men leaving the workshop and a driver whose Nissan car he stole to flee to the neighboring municipality of Zamora. It ended with the life of one of the passers-by and the owner of the vehicle.
Once in Virrey Mendoza, a street in the El Duero neighborhood of Zamora, he murdered one of the workers in a car parts company and injured two other citizens.
The homicidal route continued at a flower shop where he killed the employee and ended at a cattle feed warehouse where he killed two men and injured a man and a woman.
The local police officers managed to stop him at that point with the help of an operation that blocked the murderer’s exit and his attacks when he tried to flee from the warehouse.
Although the identity of the bandit or the causes of the multiple murder are not known – details that the FGE is now investigating – issues related to illicit drug trafficking are suspected.
The municipality of Zamora is among the most violent in Mexico and the Jalisco Nueva Generación (CJNG), La Nueva Familia Michoacana (LNFM) and Los Caballeros Templarios cartels operate in it in an arduous territorial confrontation.
