11 dead following intergang shootout in Chihuahua state -- UPDATED

 Updating the story for new facts including the dead count, identity of eight of the dead and arms seized.

Eleven unidentified individuals were found dead in the Sierras of western Chihuahua state Monday, the aftermath of a gunfight between rival criminal groups, according to Mexican news accounts.

The gunfight which killed the ten took place between Sunday night and Monday morning.


A group of Chihuahua state police and ministerial agents Monday had been dispatched to an area called La Guitarra in  Temosachi municipality, when it came under small arms fire from an armed group of unknown size waiting in the hills. 

The group which fired on the police apparently withdrew when the agents returned fire. Neither the police nor their attackers had been wounded by gunfire in the incident.  Police agents were unable to initiate pursuit of their attackers.

In the location agents found 11 dead, all apparently members of a criminal group.

The dead were identified as Hermes Yañez Gamezm 39, AKA El Choco, Jose Olivas Gamez, 35, Jose Juan Bojorquez Soto, 22, Ruelas Moncerrat Castle, 29, Arturo Tello Salinas 36 all from Cuauhtemoc municipality.

Also identified were Gil Noe Varela Gonzalez, 39, Efrain Marquez Perez, 53, Jesus Tello Mendoza, 25, all from Temosachi.

Security forces also seized one .22 caliber rifle, one AR-15 rifle, one grenade and nine ballistic vests.

A Mexican Army unit has been subsequently dispatched to the area to provide additional security.

Temosachi municipality is between Madera municipality and Ciudad Cuauhtemoc, and is about 200 kilometers west of Chihuahua city.

Temosachi is also in the area of Mexico known as the Tarahumara Sierras, which is populated by indigenous Indians, some of whom are direct ascendants of the Aztecs.  Criminal groups have in the past forced indigenous communities in Chihuahua and Durango state to grow drugs for sale, acting as feudal lords when those communities refused by torching residences.

The area is also undergoing a food crisis termed as a structural famine due to drought and extreme low temperatures, and due to the fact many Indian farmers in the region are subsistence farmers.

Last month Catholic Bishop of the Tarahumara diocese, Rafael Sandoval Sandoval told a religious group in Puebla, that Tarahumara Indians are forced to grow drug to survive because of the drought conditions.

This blog is pro Beltran-zeta bro that's why, they don't publish material that shows when Beltran-zetas get there asses stomped but things are gearing up for a big shodown, El Chapo is fed up with these Maruchan eating jotos, the streets of Nuevo Laredo and C. Victoria are going to need a lot of dump trucks to pick up all the dead mugrosozzz. The rest who know they can't hang will go into hiding just wait and see.

    So, drugs are the only commodity that will grow under drought conditions?

  10. We all da heat chapo has on him and his cds,why would he announce himself like dat,cmon guys instead of being cheerleaders use ur heads a little.the man is not so stupid as to announce himself to mexican gov and to challenge a cartel in and around their own turf!! Cds has not won one clear descisive battle yet, hes having problems in sinaloa, in chihuahua and he just made enemies of the knights of michoacan or cts, so in perspective i think its just a ploy to bring more heat to cds and chapo in specific and believe me da more bad press he gets the more the mex gov is forced to capture him and his cohorts!!!!

    1. Chapo's head of security is not dead, all the hits he has taken are two sided, people don't realise that Calderon's propaganda is only to help his campaign. The US and Mex are not intrested in capturing Chapo, he makes a lot of money for CIA, DEA, ATF, Mex gov, US gov, CDS and now CDG is reaping rewards of being an alli, with backing from Mex Army, and Marina CDG has made inroads into C. Victoria and Nuevo Laredo. CDS is now in tne picture aswell, bad news for the zetas because all these forces are out to tighten the noose around there necks. A lot going to happen in the next 9 months wait and see.

    1. Last year la liñea and zetas announced they were allies and going to take parral in a week. And they havent.

  16. I also believe the US agencies are using CDS and supplying them info somehow. A very smart, hands-free, clean way to dispose of the cartel that is bad for business because they know Mexico is too corrupt to pass info to. Crazy world when the cartel is actuall the one you trust!!!!
