6 wounded in southern Chihuahua shootouts

A total of six unidentified individuals were wounded in a series of shootings in the southern Chihuahua municipality of Guadalupe y Calvo earlier in the week.

Several Mexican news accounts, including news reports posted on the website of El Diario de Chihuahua news daily, say that four unidentified individuals were wounded in a shootout Wednesday between rival gangs between the villages of Puerto Yerbitas and El Ocote.  An ambulance had been dispatched to take the four victims to medical care in nearby Parral only to be intercepted by armed suspects near the village of San José de los Baylon.

According to an account posted on the website of MexicoWebcast.com. a Ford F-150 pickup truck driven by a lone individual was used to block the road as other suspects grabbed four of the shooting victims.

The other two shooting victims had been wounded after attempting to run a checkpoint set up by armed suspects on the highway between Guadalupe y Calvo and Parral near the village of Turuachi.

Later in the afternoon, Chihuahua state Policia Minsiteriales and some elements of the Mexican Army went to the sawmill where the larger shootout took place.  There they found two burned out tractor trailer rigs, eight weapons magazines, 362 AK-47 rounds of ammunition and 62 rounds of .223 caliber AR-15 ammunition, and one hand grenade.  The grenade was said to be US made.

Separately, according to a news report by Angelica Martinez for AgoraRevista.com, Chihuahua Fiscalia General del Estado (FGE) or attorney general is investigating links between the kidnapping and subsequent murder of  Jaime Orozco Madrigal, who was a candidate for the Partido Revolucionario Institutional (PRI) for municipal president of Guadalupe y Calvo, and the Sinaloa Drug Cartel.

Sr. Orozco Madrigal was kidnapped June 9th and was found dead three days later.   Orozco Madrigal's father and brother had been kidnapped and released late in 2012.  Without describing specifics the article says Chihuahua FGE officials say a connection exists between the crime and the Sinaloa Drug Cartel.

  6. La Linea is the Juarez Cartel. They are the bad boys that back up the Barrio Aztecas. They are municipal and state police usually. And they have teeth like barracudas.

  7. Still cds is strong they almost control in sinaloa state except guasave. Los mochis, ahome and choix still disputed territories. People always thinks that BLO is strong because every time they got killed or dumped the corpse from the rivals they often leave a message claiming the responsible of killing unlike the cds they can killed without a banner or message because cds is a professional assassins, low profile in public but dangerous in enemy. Just like the mystery murdered the sinaloa ex-governor Juan Milan and the Former Ahome police commander Nicolas Galviz Vasquez, this officials having linked the BLO, no doubt probably the cds is responsible the killing of this two officials without notice or message. In Sinaloa state averaging 50-150 murders per month and most of this killings without message.

    2. So if cds is so strong in Sinaloa, Answer this why is that Chapo Isidro kills Anthrax left and right .. And el cholo Ivan is hiding?? BLO is stronger in my opinion.. CDS just has more cheerleaders.. more propaganda..La Linea is been kicking there ass left and right in Chihuahua.. And let's be honest if it wasn't for the military Chapo and cds would of been extinct
