In a ranch called "La Minita" in the municipality of Cihuatlán on the southern coast of Jalisco, six subjects, who were all members of one family, were shot dead.
Héctor Rosales, municipal police commander, said last Friday morning at around 2000 hours the local police received a report of a shootout at the ranch located about 20 kilometers from the town.
"When we went to check the report we realized that it was a multiple execution of several vistims and not a shootout as originally reported. We learned that a group of sicarios arrived at the ranch armed with high caliber weapons, killed six members of a family and the sicarios fled in several vehicles," he said.
The bodies were identified as Luis Madrigal Birruete 68, and his sons Jose Luis 34, Hector 35, Ezekiel 32 and Antonio 28, all with the last name of Madrigal Guillén. Also killed was Juan Madrigal Birruete, brother of Madrigal Birruete.
Forensic experts of the Jalisco Institute of Forensic Sciences (IJCF) recovered at the scene shell casings 7.62x39 used with an AK-47 assault rifle and .223 caliber used on a AR-15 assault rifle.
