Author: This happened in October 26, 2013 in Apatzingán, but the video recently came out showing alleged Knight Templar (CT) attacking comunitarios or vigilante community police.
Members of vigilante groups from Buenavista and Tepalcatepec were greeted with gunfire on October 26, 2013 as they arrived in Apatzingán to demonstrate against violent crime in the region. As they passed the center of the town one could hear several explosions and bursts of gunfire coming from the Cathedral.
The gunfire prompted people to run in panic and disperse, to this date it has not been confirmed of any casualties. When the shooting started the Mexican Army and Federal Police were on the other side of the town but immediately began to move in place to intervene.
The attack began at about 1520 hours and lasted intermittently for several minutes causing anxiety and tension.
Many people who happened to be passing by and people who were taking part in the demonstration took refuge in businesses.
Earlier, the caravan of "autodefensas" or vigilantes made an agreement with the military and federal police that they would enter the town on the condition they would unarmed .
José Manuel Mireles , one of the leaders of the "comunitarios" or community polce said that they were only there to manifest and would leave the town.
This was posted in conjuction to the video by "Por una ruana con libertad":
"This last Sunday the Templario (CT) narco mayor of Apatzingan Uriel Chavez had said that the day of Saturday October 26, 2013 when the community police entered Apatzingan there had not been any type of confrontation between groups. To finally shut his mouth of the scourge of Uriel Chavez, here is the proof of what happened.
Hopefully after this he can stop defending the Templars."
