Six killed in a confrontation in Cerralvo, NL

Cerralvo, Nuevo Leon  - A confrontation between elements of the Mexican Army assisted by the Mexican Navy-Armada of Mexico (Semar) against an armed commando in the municipality of Cerralvo, left six suspected gunmen dead.

According to reports, the incident took place in the community of Alamo, where they found several individuals who were acting suspiciously aboard two vehicles, an Avalanche and a Suburban.

The report said that when the suspects saw the federal troops, they began a gunfight that killed four of the attackers, two of which were inside one of the vans and two others were killed as they attempted to flee.

It was later learned that two other members of the armed group were pursued and killed by federal troops during a second confrontation a few minutes later. Cerralvo municipality was heavily cordoned by elements of the Semar and the Mexican Army, and was patrolled by a helicopter of the federal forces.
