Mayhem in Zacatecas: 7 die

By Chris Covert

Areas around Fresnillo, Villanueva and Sombrerete municipalities in Zacatecas state heated up since last Sunday as rival armed gangs engaged in firefights killing at least three.  Also in Sombrerete municipality, a small aircraft crashed in a remote area of the municipality killing three according to Mexican news accounts.

According to a news item posted on the website of El Sol de Zacatecas news daily, a small aircraft crashed near the village of Charco Blanco en Sombrerete municipality. Four unidentified individuals were killed.  The report added the authorities at the time of the news posting did not know if the aircraft was a government or private bird.

Meanwhile, armed groups presumably associated with the drug cartel fought each other in several engagements in Sombrerete, Villanueva and Fresnillo municipalities since Sunday.

Two individuals were found Tuesday in two separate vehicles abandoned after a Sunday shootout between armed groups in Fresnillo municipality.  The first unidentified victim was found in a stolen abandoned Volkswagen Jetta sedan near the village of Purisima del Maguey.  Inside the vehicle was found one AK-47 rifle, 1,000 rounds of ammunition and at least 24 packages of marijuana.

Near the village of Enrique Estrada, also in Fresnillo municipality, a second shooting victim was found dead aboard a Volkswagen Bora sedan, and was identified as Fernando Dueñas Acevedo.  The news report said the second victim may have also been involved in Sunday's shootout in Villanueva municipality, which took the life in a police agent.

Also in Fresnillo municipality, police agents raided a safe house in El Triunfo seizing undisclosed quantities of drugs and weapons.  No detainees were reported in that raid

A separate El Sol de Zacatecas report said that numerous gunfights have taken place since Tuesday between armed groups in the hills between Valparaiso and Sombrerete municipalities.  The report did not mention any casualties.

In Valparaiso last March five unidentified individuals were killed by elements of the Mexican 52 Infantry Battalion.  A second relief element dispatched from a base in Fresnillo to reinforce the fight  was attacked.  No one was reported wounded or detained in that second shootout.

    1. "Numerous gunfights in the hills, no reported casualties...."

      There is no way there are no casualties, that 55,000 dead (or 100,000 even) is so far off the mark it's not even funny. Would say 1/4 million is more realistic

    Back in 2006, the U.S. Army began a controversial program to send cultural specialists to unfamiliar warzones. Now the Human Terrain System is investigating the idea of sending social scientists to a place that’s neither alien nor a declared battlefield for U.S. troops: Mexico.

    i keep telling my friends we will be going to mexico but they didn't believe me. my buddies don't disagree with me anymore.

    1. @1:56: The only thing that might get a point across to these fucking cartels is dropping a couple of daisy cutters on their hideouts. The war is coming. It's only a matter of time. Drones can already be seen flying in the New Mexican & Arizona deserts.

  4. @4:31, Zeta cheerleader? They are the worst kind of human beings. No ONE likes those low life ramen noodle eaters. Their bosses eat lobster and buy million dollar horses while the workers eat ramen noodles and sleep on shacks. HAHAHA, I don't know why someone would risk their life to become a Zeta.

  6. We got fam in chihuahua, michoacan,and durango. We stay in touch with them constantly. The word over there is totally different. Im told that in dirango carteles unidos came in but then the bosse from different clicks couldn't get along and started a small war with each other. And now nobody knows who runs what. In chihuahua same thing. That when la linea or zetas retaliate nobody even runs the story. But when chapo people ride it's a front page story. About how he is winning. And michoacan is full of zeta cells waiting to be called upon. I dont know what to think. I hope these cartel scum get whats coming to them. Just that the math don't add up is chapo losing and the media is covering it up. I hope they all lose and die.
