2 die during confrontation in Michoacán

This Friday morning there was a confrontation between two criminal cells, which left two armed civilians dead in the municipality of Zamora.

The confrontation took place on the dirt road that leads from the community of Atacheo in Zamora, to the town of Moreno de Valencia, municipality of Ecuandureo.

Police reports indicate that the bodies of two people killed in the shooting were found in that place near the state of Jalisco; one of them calcined.

The authorities state that four vehicles used in the confrontation were also located, which, according to the inhabitants, lasted for several minutes.

The reports indicate that two of those vehicles were burned and of the four insured units, three had a robbery report.

Of the dead, state and federal forces reported that, for the moment, they are unknown.

The Ministry of Public Security of Michoacán reported that after the criminal act it mounted an operational and surveillance deployment in the area, together with federal forces.

That area is disputed by Los Viagras, of the Sierra Santana brothers and the Jalisco Nueva Generación Cartel, led by Nemesio Oseguera Cervantes “El Mencho”.
