Shootout Between Military and Sicarios in Yurecuaro, Michoacan

Monday, October 3, 2011 |


An armed commando travelling in several vehicles in the main plaza of the town of Yurecuaro, Michoacan was intercepted by the Mexican military resulting in a violent confrontation and pursuit through several streets. The confrontation left five sicarios dead along with a woman killed by the cross fire who was merely walking along the sidewalk and had nothing to do with the incident.

It is known that shortly after 1500 hours the military forces were conducting their routine patrols in the center of the town when they witnessed a convoy of luxury trucks occupied by numerous gunmen.

The military immediately made an attempt to stop them but the vehicles fled at high speed on the street Ferrocarril Oriente located near the plaza and opened fire on the soldiers, who also responded with gunfire. Four sicarios that had been travelling in a white Escalate bearing California plate number 6DKM124 were killed when the vehicle rolled over during their attempt to escape from the military.

The crash distracted the military allowing enough time for the rest of the sicarios to continue their escape, however the military continued to engage in the pursuit. It was during this time that a woman identified as Soledad Aguilar Flores, 45 years of age, that was walking down on the street Amado Nervo was hit by a stray bullet that took her life. Not far from the body of the woman, the thugs abandoned their SUV, a white Explorer bearing California plates 8P48866.

As the shootout continued, one of the criminals went inside a mechanic shop located at the street Vicente Guerrero No. 44, and threatened the people inside to hand over the keys to a white Ford Lobo pickup but he was intercepted by soldiers who engaged him with gunfire killing him on the spot.

Once the area was deemed safe the federal police secured a total of five assault rifles AK-47 (cuernos de chivo), two AR-15, two handguns and a 9.mm submachine. A total of 19 fully loaded magazines for the AK-47 and AR-15 were also recovered.

In an unrelated incident, the army arrested a subject that was found near the body of the dead woman, who initially said he was the cousin of the victim, but when the real family of the victim arrived at the scene, they claimed the man was not related to the victim, it was then when the man admitted stealing a gun that had been dropped by the gunmen.

I love how the one schmuck tries stealing a gun on the street and claims he's the victim's cousin. LOL@ about the Escalade. Someone in California is getting a visit now by the local police saying, sir we think we found your stolen vehicle LOL

For what it's worth (not that it matters) but those assholes probably would have survived the escalade roll over, if they were wearing their seat belts..now whether or not the soldiers would have allowed them to live...that's a different story..lol

I live about 30 min from Salinas and i cant believe im seeing this escalade from there

Lots of folks from Salinas have ties to Michoacan. I just hope these cartels haven't linked up with the California criminal street gangs. Could you imagine norte and sur with AK-47s and grenades?

@ Jesus the Moose I just hope these cartels haven't linked up with the California criminal street gangs.

To late for that, as far as I know they supply California street gangs with Meth, from San Diego to Nevada and Seattle. The gangs help them with guns, stolen vehicles, transportation of the drugs and many more things.
