A total of 15 individuals have been killed in ongoing drug and gang related violence in Zacatecas state since Thursday, including eight armed suspects according to Mexican news accounts.

A news report posed on the online edition of El Sol de Zacatecas news daily said that eight armed suspects died in an exchange of gunfire with Mexican Policia Federal (PF) and Zacatecas state police forces that started around noon in Genaro Codina municipality and ended at around 1500 hrs Saturday.

According to reports, the gunfight was a series of encounters including pursuits that involved as many as 22 PF vehicles including an number of Rinoceronte or Rhino armor vehicles.

Eight armed suspects were killed and another five were detained at the scene.  A quantity of weapons were also seized but the details were not disclosed.

Genaro Codina is about 30 kilometers south of Zacatecas municipality.

Seven other individuals  were killed in ongoing drug and gang related violence in Zacatecas state.

  • Two armed suspects were and a female passerby were killed in an intergang firefight Wednesday night in Sain Alto municipality.   Margarita Monserrat Vazquez Araujo, 19, from Guanajuato was travelling with a male companion on Mexico Federal Highway 45 when she was struck in the face with a stray bullet.  She later died while receiving medical attention.  Mexican security forces found three abandoned vehicles which had been shot up presumably during the gunfight.
  • Three armed suspects were killed in an armed encounter with a Mexican Naval infantry road patrol near Jerez  municipality.  The military unit was on patrol near the village of Organos when marines came under small arms fire.  Marine return fire killed the three suspects.   The El Sol de Zacatecas report said that the number of armed suspects firing was undetermined, so apparently a number of them escaped.  A total of four more armed suspects surrendered.
  • One unidentified armed suspect was killed in an exchange of gunfire between armed suspects and a Mexican Policia Federal (PF) road patrol in Calera municipality Thursday. The army unit attempted a traffic stop of several vehicles in Lauro G. Caloca colony, but were instead fired on during a brief pursuit.  Army return fire killed one suspect. Two other suspects were detained at the scene.
  • A Mexican Army unit detained four suspected kidnappers in Fresnillo municipality Wednesday.  A unit with the Mexican 11th Military Zone received a complain from an unidentified female kidnapping victim from Plan de Ayala neighborhood in Fresnillo.  An army unit dispatched to the address rescuing one other female kidnapping victim and detaining four suspects at the scene.  Soldiers also secured two Norinco brand AK-47 rifles, 10 weapons magazines and 539 rounds of ammunition and one Nissan Altima sedan.

9:01 Cleaning of zetas?! Sure (sarcastic ), the zetas have grown in all the areas they supposedly got cleaned out of. In Veracruz there's a shitload of zetas, more than befor. Same thing goes for Nuevo Leon, Tamaulipas, coahulia, san Luis potosi. There in jalisco, colima, and nayarit. (Mexican states) What cleaning? The sinaloa cartel should be embarrassed. Theve received government support for 6 years and they still haven't defeated the Juarez cartel. Look what's happening now in Chihuahua, all of chapos people are being killed. What a mess and all because of el chapos greed. Thats whats wrong. But his plan backfired. He hasn't finished off any cartel, not even with the help off opnis(government? ) HOW EMBARRASSING.-Rough translation

Was being sarcastic"the cleaning of zetas"yeah right.
He saying they only increased,a few got hit,but there still there and more."Nuevo Leon, Tamaulipas, Coahuila, San Luis Potosi are in Jalisco, Nayarit, Colima or whatever this is cleansed"?"shame to CDS with government support for 6 years couldn't sort Juarez,they have won""And look what's happening in Chihuahua,shit still going on"
Seems to make sense,where are the Z getting cleaned out badly?

I just got back from zacatecas yesterday and zetas are getting wiped out like roaches. You say ur zeta or associate with them piece of shits best believe they coming to ur house and not knocking they braking doors down. Chapitos (cds n cdg) have tookn over in most of zacatecas the battle still continues in the north of zac but even there where it was there strong hold getting tookn away and honestly its alot more peaceful right b4 i came chapitos had even hung banners in jalpa and moyahua thanking the people and the cops mind you for all there cooperation and helping them with all there information leading to the captures of thr zetas and not to worry they were protecting the streets of zacatecas to be a safer place. And to have a good xmas as far as other states i can't say to much but zacatecas i have family in the north (calera) n i stay in juchipila so i see n hear wat goes on there n i can say in my eyes zetas have lost control in zac.
