Update on the shootout in Rosarito, alleged CDS hitman was in fact innocent victim from the US.

I´m adding this update to clear up previous reports, initially it was reported by local press in Baja California that Tomas Llamas Garcia was in fact a sicario for Alfredo Arteaga aka "El Aquiles", now it´s been confirmed that Tomas Llamas wasn´t part of any cartel, he is a US citizen who worked in National City and was in Rosarito just to enjoy some time off.

I also received an email regarding another victim identified as Hector Tapia who apparently was also a US citizen and who was not related to criminal activities.

According to PGJE this is correct, this means that two US citizens and a 11yr old boy were the victims of this failed attack.

The following is the translation of the AFN story on Tomas and how he was initially identified as a sicario by some "sources".

TIJUANA BC March 18, 2013 ( AFN) . The young man who died the on Sunday in "Los Arenales" was not part of any cartel nor called Eloy Espinoza Ramos, this was pointed out by people close to the victim who further reported that his death was due to a lack of competence of the municipal police of Rosarito who left him bleeding to death in the Jeep where he was found.
  
His real name they say is Tomás Llamas who worked in San Diego, where he apparently was a vendor for the DoD (or authorized to enter their staff facilities) this according to a credential shown to AFN Tijuana .

In the last hours "sources" claimed that this man was in fact named Eloy Espinoza Ramos and that he was part of the group of Alfredo Arteaga Arzate alias "El Aquiles" and his brother René alias " La Rana " . They branded him as the author of several deaths, including that of a former police "commander".

People close to Tomas Llamas ensure that the latter worked at National City for an automotive company, in charge of loading new vehicles into trucks to be delivered. They also said he was 26 years old.
  
According to them, this young man came to Baja California with three other friends who were visiting Playas de Tijuana Real del Mar, but then decided to move to " Los Arenales " knowing the environment that is held every week there.
  
They said they decided to stay in that site because there was music, after that, the attack in which the young man was hit in the abdomen took place. Other sources referred to AFN that they took Tomas with them for medical care and were received in the military roadblock who allowed them to continue on their way to a hospital but  elements of the local police intercepted them and did not let them go on their way despite pleas from friends who saw him bleed to death.

The believe Tomas died as a result of the negligence of the local police and was a victim not only of the shooter, but of the insecurity prevailing in Baja California.
  

People who identified him as Eloy Espinoza sent photographs showing a strong resemblance to Llamas, but the bear outlines of Tomas, on one side of the mouth are thicker than those of Eloy.
  
Some of his friends told AFN "we are well doing young guys , tired of so much corruption and crime, and the lack of opportunities and looking for a better future."

  6. Wow just a bunch of cartel worshippers here. You guys talk about these sicarios as though they're characters on a popular tv show. In reality, these guys are a just a bunch of fat slobs with guns and heavy cocaine habits. These guys are deadbeats and not nearly as glamorous as you think. Not that my opinion is going to change your unquenchable thirst for romanticizing these thugs.

  7. This I.D is a rapid gate pass issued to independent contractors that have access to military bases and restricted gov. Properties. The person that applies for this card has to go thru extensive background check including finger prints. There is no way this person had a criminal history. This guy was just in the wrong place at the wrong time. My condolences to the family.

    1. Common access card (CAC card) for. Computer access. Yes, also works for RF card reader door access and facility access identification card. Many people say "Mexico is safe" and "I went there and nothing happened". It could be 99.9 percent safe but it's that .1 percent that will kill you.

  8. I had the pleasure of meeting this great person at work in National City. My condolences to his family and friends. Such tragedy I'm sure he was innocent based on how hard he worked and the way he conducted himself towards others. Very respecful and full of energy. Will miss driving around in the Van parking cars listening to all the jokes.

    We are all heart broken.

  13. that's the other sad thing about Mexico...in order to protect tourist dollars, the mexican government is quick to smut people up to make it seem like the only crimes happening, are to criminals at the hands of other criminals...no justice ...Another thing that amazes me is the frequency with which mexican politicians settle their disputes amongst themselves, with murder...poor people need to get full of rage and rise up

  14. Typical actions by the Mexican authorities. After a couple incidents with corrupt police in baja in my late teens I decided to stop spending my money there. Every time we'd cough up mordidas which in reality was a way to rob us simply because we were from California and fit the profile.

  15. I try to tell people don't go to baja to hang out and party or get lobster. This was an attempted cover up by government to not scare tourism. They always try to blame the victims as connected to drugs even when it's not true.

  20. I can´t tell you to go or not go to Baja, that´s up to you, but telling people not to go there because some assholes did this is like telling boys not to go to school because some crazy SOB might shoot you and then kill himself.

    This is a very unfortunate event, and my condolences go to those families affected, but tourists aren´t the target.

During thise races there are thousands of super expensive trucks/jeeps and nothing happens cause it brings tremendous revenue to baja, dont fuck with big money which is what is coming by way of multi-national oil and Carlos Slim wanting to turn baja into a Medeterranian Las Vegas. Cartels will have to learn to operate like the italian mob/biker sydicates or cease to exist

  26. the municipal police are on the cartel payroll and wanted to make sure this guy died by interfering with his transportation to a hospital. I seen other videos where guys get shot, the police arrive and don't provide any help to the wounded. instead they start interrogating them. that is some effed up stuff man.....

    1. Its a known fact mexico police leave wounded men to die and block help from getting to them...they watch them bleed to death while they conduct their investigation ( cover up) they wont allow paramedics access to the wounded...the dirty police that stopped this young innocent man from getting help and possibly saved are just as guilty as the idiot that shot him

  27. we can not say this guy is innocent little angel.. he did something..he pissed off somebody..no body will kill you just because you are a us citizen or whatever..

    if you go to mexico do not buy drugs,do not act like something wont happen to you !

  28. Don't go at night, and stick to the main tourist areas. I just can't stomach this crap anymore, so I won't be going to B.C. anytime soon. My cousin was one of the men killed. This happened in Primo Tapia, which is South of Puerto Nuevo even, a few miles out from RB. Not exactly a main party spot, but not the middle of nowhere either. When is America going to stop enabling this drug war and the cartels? Is it worth it for more innocent lives to be destroyed because some asshole rich kid in La Jolla can get his 8-ball of coke? When will it end?

  29. If you go to any U.S. county jail, state prison or federal prison you will find a lot of innocent men doing hard time... maybe they should let them out...

  38. I´m comparing the possibility of a tourist being killed in Mexico, this guys were tourist who died in a stupid action by some lowlife, I still think most of the people executed are related to cartels, not all of them and there are a lot of innocents, but I´m comparing the possibility of a tourist getting killed here.

    If you can´t understand what I meant, too bad.

  39. linieras y gente nueva like all cartels you are stupid, how much MONEY have you put together to retire from that stupid life? even el chapo's beloved babies are going into the life because daddy left them poor and ignorant, like amado carrillo fuentes, his children keep getting arrested because daddy didn't provide any other alternatives?
    did vicente zambada really have no other alternatives?
