One unidentified Mexican soldier and total of 10 unidentified armed suspects, including one female were killed in a gunfight in northern Guerrero state Wednesday morning, according to Mexican news accounts.

An article which appeared on the website of Milenio news daily said that a Mexican Army road patrol, identified as an element of the Mexican 27th Infantry Battalion, encountered armed suspects who were travelling aboard two vehicles in Tepecpacuilco municipality, which opened fire on the patrol after being signalled to stop.  The gunfight took place in La Moneda colony near the village of Rincon de la Cocina.

A separate wire service dispatch posted on holaciudad.com news website said the gunfight took place in Santiago Apostol chapel near Cerro de Jumil, where the suspects had apparently abandoned their vehicles to seek refuge.

Another report from the Reuters wire service posted on ntn24.com said that two unidentified civilians who had been abducted by the armed group were wounded in the firefight.  The report adds that La Familia Michoacana and Los Pelones criminal gangs  operate in the area.

Following the end of the firefight, soldiers seized two vehicles, five AK-47 rifles, five AR-15 rifles, two .380 caliber pistols and 65 bags of marijuana.
