Monterrey, NL.- On Friday afternoon, five youths were gunned down as they talked in front of a local convenience store named “Mimis” by a group of armed commandos. The bodies were taken and later dropped in front of their homes. One of the victims was a 14 year old student, people close to him say he had nothing to do with criminal activity and was simply a bystander.
According to witness, a pick-up truck that was accompanied by late model vehicle, stopped at the neighborhoods of each youth and left the body in the street in front of their houses. The other victims in this crime were between 16 - 21 years old.
Neighbors reported seeing the assailants pull up and open fire on the young men. The killers left the scene, but another pick-up truck soon pulled up and the occupants began to load the corpses into the truck. Police and army dispatchers began to get several calls reporting this incident was happening in different places, other than the original scene of the crime. This created so much disorientation among the ground forces that a helicopter was called in to secure the actual scene with birds eye view. It is believed this was part of the tactic used by this hit team to allow enough time to secure the bodies and get away without the police chasing after them.
Brutal Attack on Restaurant in Monterrey
Monterrey, NL.- Last Wednesday, an armed group of 7 men arrived in 3 vehicles and attacked a local restaurant, robbing the male clients, and in addition to that, raped several of the female patrons. The restaurant is named Altata Mariscos Sinaloenses, located in southern Monterrey.
The extent of this crime was not known until Thursday when it was denounced by the Public Ministry.
In a crowded room that was full of over 100 clients, the group separated the men and took the women to another part of the restaurant and sexually abused them. When the police arrived they found signs of struggle and articles of clothing on the floor.
