7 dead in Apatzingán after police ambushed

Rurale with head injury
Yesterday morning (Tue. June 16), at about 1:AM two members of the Forces Rurales and 5 civilians were killed in an ambush near Apatzingan.  Five members of the Rurales were injured in the attack, one in an injury to the head and according to unofficial reports had brain matter showing but was still alive after being transported along with the other injured to hospitals in Apatzingan, about 30 minutes from the site of the attack.

The reports from different media give some conflicting details, but the above seems to be a brief consensus of the basic facts of the attack.  Some report there were 6 killed.  Some report that there is a missing policeman, some say there are 2 missing.

OEO reported that a call for assistance from the survivors was not made until about 8:AM even though the attack started about 1AM, because the area was so remote that there was no telephone signal available.  

"It is noteworthy that after the police realized they  were exceeded in number by criminals, many hid in the bush and weeds, until dawn when they could go to a place where communication was possible because the a good signal does not exist in the place of the attack."


The Rurales had been tasked with  escorting  some trucks that were "decommissioning" or dismantling the Fortaleza de Anunaki which was the home, playground and meeting place of Caballeros leader Nazario “El Chayo” Moreno González and boasted rodeo grounds with capacity for 1,000 people, a casino and cockfighting ring.  

As the trucks left the Anunaki, the small caravan of trucks carrying scrap metal from the dismantling of facilities at the ranch, and the two police vehicle escorts were attacked about 1 kilometer from the entrance to the ranch.  
The assailants attacked with gunfire and grenades.  One of the policemen was shot in the head and lost control of his vehicle and crashed into a ditch.  The other dead policeman was found in his vehicle which had been incinerated, but it is unclear if he was killed first by the gunfire or died in the fire.  

Two of the civilians killed were drivers of the big trucks carrying the scrap metal.  Two other civilians were killed who most reports indicate were in a Nissan "cleated" truck that was  just passing by on the highway when the ambush took place.  Their bodies were found in their truck which also had been incinerated.  

 As soon as they received the call for help to the area elements of the Federal Police as well as the Mexican Army moved to the area, and  "combed" the area for the attackers, but needless to say that since it was 8 hours after the ambush, they found nothing.   It is thought that some of the attackers may have been wounded and were "hospitalized" in the rugged surrounding mountains.

Information has been slow coming out of the area due to its remoteness, but at this time there were no updates on the condition of the injured police.  There is speculation that the attackers were remnants of the Knights Templar.  

The Mayor of Apatzingan said there had been no violence in the city resulting from the attack (maybe because there is a heavy presence of federal police and military already there).  But the Governor last night ordered increased patrols in the rural areas around Apatzingan.

  2. Any security group traveling in remote areas should be provided with satellite phones with a reliable sat carrier. Where this is not available, larger support teams should be assigned.

    1. Astonishingly enough, Oakland's police department has had the same issues, with their officers unable to communicate with dispatch or anyone else on that wavelength because their system doesn't have the coverage needed to allow officers freedom of communication.
      Rather disconcerting for the men and women patroling the streets of one of the most dangerous cities in the nation.

    2. Neighborhoods that have been targeted for gentrification do not get help, nor police or fire stations until the powers that be decide it was enough, they also plant drugs, guns, gangs and ho's all over, to de-populate the real estate, that is how they "move business"...

  6. The 2 drivers of the dump trucks carrying scrap metal from the El Chayos ranch named La Fortaleza were the first to ''go.'' I didn't know the Mexican Government was demolishing CT founder El Chayos luxury ranch/headquarters.

  7. Criminals want to flex? Two can play at that game. I would have a few rapid reaction force raids in the area. If they want attention; give it to them.

  16. No offense to Borderland Beat and their outstanding updates and post, but the conflicting reports is only common due to the inability of reporters to get out and get stories. That has proven to be far to risky in the past. Hopefully the injured will recover and be fine. Would be great if the count for the innocent killed was 0 and the criminals, all of them.
