Yesterday night three municipal police officers working for the city of Navolato, Sinaloa decided to stop at a hot dog stand for some dinner. As they were eating, a heavily armed group arrived and directed a hail of gunfire at the officers.
The officers were torn apart at the scene and did not have time to repel the assault. At the scene police found numerous spent casings from AR-15s and AK-47s.
The officers killed were identified as Mario Francisco Hermosillo Ibarra, Martín Uriarte Sauceda and Valentín Flores Bueno.
