Gun attack on Lt. Col. Julián Leyzaola,remains in serious condition, his bodyguard killed

Lucio R Borderland Beat posted by 'Mano' material from AFN -Twiiter

Update:  The chief is out of intensive care and is recovering as of today 5.12.15.  I would like to acknowledge that there are 4 versions "of facts" out there.  I went with the facts from his close friend but realize it also may be faulty, because of the fact the story was posted early after breaking.  What is undisputed, Leyzaola was gunned down in an assassination attempt in Juarez.  He was taken to the hospital, undergone surgeries, and is recovering. Two are in custody.


An assassination attempt was made today,  against the former police chief of Tijuana and Juarez, Julián Leyzaola Pérez.

The latest reports indicate that he is out of surgery and is recovering,  according to the Secretary of Public Security, Omar Muñoz Cesar Morales. 

Leyzaola was attacked this afternoon when he was traveling in a white Jeep Commander SUV.  His wife,  daughter and escort (bodyguard) were with him at the time of the shooting.

After the attack the suspects attempted to flee in a blue Mitsubishi Endeavor, but were stopped  a short distance from the scene of the attack.

The detainees were identified as Hugo Alonso Serenil Luna alias ‘El Cabezón’,  33, and  Jesús Antonio Castañeda Álvarez,  25.

Authorities report the suspects were both drugged, and told police “we were ordered to kill someone but never knew the name”.

The former mayor of Tijuana, Jorge Ramos Hernández, reported this afternoon that his good friend and great human being, Lieutenant Colonel Julian Leyzaola is stable, but that one of his bodyguards died during the attack.  The unidentified bodyguard, "lost his life protecting Julian". ((other reports have his condition as critical but stable)

The attack occurred when Leyzaola stopped his vehicle at a commercial area on avenida Internacional, in the city of Juarez, so that his family could exit the vehicle to do some shopping.   It was while he stopped and still behind the wheel that a blue Mitsubishi pulled up, one gunman exited the vehicle and began shooting.

Leyzaola was transferred to a private hospital, where they performed the surgery and he is recovering, while being heavily guarded.  It is not uncommon for sicarios to go to the hospital and finish the job.
Suspects
He was attacked in what is described as “a hail of bullets”, four struck the former chief, one in the neck, twice in the chest area, and one in the back.

 Secretary Muñoz Morales, confirmed  the arrest of the two alleged perpetrators.

Julian Leyzaola Perez is a retired former military officer who served as Secretary of Public Security of Ciudad Juarez, from 2010 to 2013.

Before his arrival at the border, he headed the municipal police of Tijuana, where he significantly reduced  the crime wave that engulfed the city.

Recently, the Partido Encuentro Social political party,  (PES) the appointment of Lieutenant Colonel Julián Leyzaola Pérez, as security adviser in 2015.

    1. Leyzaola has had a bounty in Juarez for some time now. Many feel he's trying to bring CAF to gain la plaza. La Linea and Artistas Assesinos want him dead. Both of these are very territorial when it comes to outsiders. And as far as security goes he's constantly rotating wherever he goes. Sometimes theses guys get too confident.

  17. border news channel krgv devoted oh about 15 seconds to Julián Leyzaola Pérez but they made no mention of his name. but as i have said due to threats against this usa news station they are a bit careful to not irritate the cartels.

  18. hi. I hear he es a wheel chair for life no more walking

  19. This the third assassination attempt against him, right?

    I remember at least one in Tijuana, and one in Juarez in 2011, when he was attacked by Federal Police (corrupt agents? criminals in disguise?) and he survived because his car was armoured.

    Leyzaola did a great job in Tijuana and Juarez to reduce crime, as this attacks show...and he's stronger than narcos.
    Honor to the bodyguard and best wishes to Julian and his family

  20. he is my brother...that's why I know your "version" is false....the truth is he had no bodyguard and he is exposed ....in danger.

  22. Front page headline of today's Diario de El Paso....."sicario dijo que el jefe policiaco me mando matar: leyzaola". .... Apparently he was set up by a police chief accoding to the gunmen. The story continues.....
