Gunmen Kill 5 People Inside Restaurant Next to Lake Chapala, Jalisco

"MX" for Borderland Beat

The restaurant, named "El Memo", is on the highway that connects Guadalajara, Jalisco, with the state of Michoacan.

The Jalisco Attorney General's Office is investigating a mass killing in Jocotepec Municipality, Jalisco.

Over the weekend, an armed commando arrived at a restaurant next to Lake Chapala and opened fire on a group of diners. Five of them were killed and two more were wounded.

People inside the restaurant called the emergency line to notify authorities of the attack. Upon arrival their arrival, several witnesses confirmed that at least four gunmen participated in the killing and that it seemed like the attack was direct and not at random. 

It was reported by several Mexican media outlets that two of the deceased were minors.

Investigators believe that the attack could be due to a "settling of scores" (ajuste de cuentas) between organized crime groups in the area, particularly the criminal cells based in Jocotepec and Chapala municipalities.

In the Guadalajara metropolitan area, members of the Jalisco Nueva Generación Cartel (CJNG) and the Nueva Plaza Cartel (CNP) are competing for control. Jocotepec is about an hour drive from Guadalajara.

Several clashes were reported across Jalisco over the weekend. Just on Sunday, a total of 14 murders were committed in the municipalities of San Cristobal de la Barranca, Jocotepec, and Ojuelos. No one was arrested for the crimes.

    1. I agree, NUEVA PLAZA is desperate, CAN'T get to CJNG so THEY are heating up the PLAZA..
      If you THINK ABOUT it, I wouldn't be SURPRISED if nueva PLAZA killed those 3 KIDS and went in with CJNG vests to BLAME them for that killing..
      Don't THINK any CARTEL will be that sloppy, they also let his cousin ALUVE so he COULD tell them what he SEEN..
      NP/CDS are known to calendar la PLAZA

    2. But...but...NP was totally exterminated by CJNG...

    3. Sickening. Killing random innocent people to “heat up the plaza”. People can’t even go on about their life peacefully without possibly getting killed for no reason AT ALL. Pathetic.

      They need to hit the restart button on MX. Start from scratch. Create a new government, new institutions, bring in new laws. Allow law abiding citizens to arm themselves legally. Create special units to hunt down the worse of the worse. That is just the start. Smdh
