A group of armed gunmen shot up and burned four houses in Los Limones, a small town 15 km. north of Mazatlan, Sinaloa.
The police reports state several trucks with heavily armed masked men entered the small town of less than two hundred inhabitants in search of at least three men.
While three of the residences were unoccupied , it was reported the gunmen removed a woman, children, and an elder from the fourth before opening fire on the homes and setting them ablaze.
Although investigators recovered almost 300 AK-47 and AR-15 shell casings from the scene, no injuries were reported.
