Seven other individuals were killed or were found dead in or near Monterrey.

  • A man was shot to death while standing at a queue at a taco stand in Pueblo Nuevo colony  in Apodaca municipality colony Saturday night.  Miguel Angel Ochoa Guzman, 35, died at the scene near the intersection of calles Rio Aconcagua and Rio Acaponeta.  According to the translation, two unidentified armed suspects exited from a vehicle and shot  Ochoa Guzman in the head before fleeing from the scene on foot. The suspects were said to have taken a taxi a few blocks away.
  • An unidentified man was executed following a rollover car crash in Monterrey Saturday night.  The victim was involved in a pursuit in Independencia colony at around 2100 hrs, when the driver of the car he was travelling in crashed near the intersection of calle Oaxaca and Lago de Patzcuar.

Rojos, XX, Jaguares are NGG due to there allies El Chapo, FM. Metros, Ciclones, XW, Bravos, etc. form CDG whose allies are CT, CDT, Nuevo Milenio. Metros have been gaining ground due to Z3 & Z50 people jumping ships to CDG. Why do you think CDG controls most of MTY & a lot more plazas.

@4:37am You are a fool to think its just the gayass

since the beginning,but like i said numerous times they hide there killings unlike the zetas style "shock and awe" they are the same filth, but chapo dont help when he invades,it causes ultra death of of innocents...idiots like you who still dont fkn get it,i hate both sides!!!!
fkn call me a nutthugger!!! the Zees are self destructing on there own,but Chapo's invasions cause massive deaths on innocents,cause they hide the body's in clandestine graves.
Even some of the zees chapo's people said they chopped up....they were fkn innocents!!!
I SAY AGAIN....there all filth,yes including chapo you nutthugger!!!stop supporting his balls.

Have you ever considered that under the sub text of these cartel wars they kill certain groups of undesirable people because of some bigger agenda?

So they defined some quota for some areas and at the same time the fear prevents these people to really initiate some revolution against the establishment.

Mexico has a real over population problem and that always leads to conflict either external or internal. The establishment knows all these facts for a long time. So they can either let it play out and endanger their position or they can try to manage it.

So what's really going on is some cleansing policy and to do that you need to create/find the drugged/psychotic/psychopathic persons to do the dirty work. Make life hell so people don't procreate and rise the death count. A sinister psychological warfare with the ultimate goal for population reduction.

And as with all these policies they can get out of hand because micro managing it would show their hands.

Yeah,i would have that,one minute CDG having big problems,next minute they making ground against the Z,i think CDS also sending guys in for sure as you say.There is a line up against Z to take their home,i wonder if the Lazca death was a catalyst and is having more of an effect?He was a near fuckin mythical leader,and then bang bang

The truest words spoken.It takes balls to be completely hard and not give a fuck,as long as you win and dont get tortured or fucked off.
Just being real,there never was honor among thieves,thats a load of shit,aint it brother.Shit,theres no honor amongst people here.Most cant grasp that shit.

You might not really know whats been going on in mexico you must be getting all your info from here or a different online source. All cartels have internal strugle once somebody gets enough money, guns, & sikarios in there crew they become power hungry. CDG has been in the rise of power once again. X20 has been doing his homework to raise CDG power. Monterrey & Zacatecas, San Luis is in CDG hands now since the beginning of the year but like I said dont believe every thing you read online.
