Around 1100 AM, Wednesday 23rd, of August, a couple was gunned down in Fraccionamiento Santa Fe. The area was not included in the 10 most dangerous areas of the city, however, the delegation San Antonio de los Buenos belongs to that area, and it has a red mark.
"Because of the incursion of the Cartel Jalisco Nueva Generacion with the young members of the CAF, the areas of danger of the city continue to expand", said an investigator to ZETA.
The Santa Fe victims were identified as Brayan Garmiño Moreno and a young woman, identified as Joselyn Garate Marquez. Regarding Joselyn, the investigators of the State Council of Security, know that she is the ex-girlfriend of Salvador Alcala Gonzalez, who was arrested in September 13, of 2014 in Mazatlan, Sinaloa, due to an apprehension order with purposes of extradition into the United States for "drug trafficking and conspiracy to traffic drugs"; he was also identified as an operator of the Cartel Arellano Felix in Baja California since 2012.

Regarding Brayan, the authorities have two versions: The state indicates that he is the brother of Carlos Garmino Gonzelez (CAF leader) and a cousin of Fernando Garmino Moreno "El Fashion", "La Muñeca", or "La Barbie", both detained in february of 2016. The Federal government claimed that he is the brother of "El Fashion" and a cousin of "El Karateca". And one day before an attack was perpetrated against Brayan, cops visited his home without any results.

During wednesday's incident, it was Garmino who drove the vehicle where he was attacked, to Hospital Del Carmen, where he was medically assisted.
However, authorities claim that this rise in violance started in August 16, and the criminals have focused in the Third area of La Zona Rio. Criminals have documented this area with violance through dismembered bodies, gunned down individuals and narcomantas.
