'Los Oaxacos' Assassin Squad Leader Killed in San Quintín, Baja California

"MX" for Borderland Beat

Alexis Barrón Medina, alias "El Pelirrojo" (The Redhead) or "El Pecas" (Freckles), identified by security forces as the assassin squad leader of Los Oaxacos gang in San Quintin, Baja California, was killed this past weekend.

Reports indicate that Barron Medina arrived at a hospital in San Quitin after he was shot three times by unknown assailants. Investigators say they are unsure where the attack occurred. Barron Medina died shortly after he was received at the clinic.

Members of Los Oaxacos warned on social media that there would be retaliation for Barron Medina's death.

Public information about Los Oaxacos is limited. Local media outlets say that it is a small gang based in Baja California, particularly in Tijuana, Ensenada, and San Quintin municipalities.

San Quintin municipality was formed in February 2020. It was originally part of Ensenada. Much of the violence in these two municipalities are due to a gangland dispute between the Jalisco New Generation Cartel (CJNG), the Sinaloa Cartel, and various other gangs.

As reported by Borderland Beat, various factions of the Sinaloa Cartel are fighting for control of Ensenada since the September 2020 murder of Víctor Manuel Murillo Padilla, alias "El Chatarras" or "El Negro".

Los Oaxacos were reportedly born in Tijuana sometime in the early 2010s by members from Los Talibanes and/or Los Chamulas, a faction once headed by Israel Osuna Abarca, alias "El Paisa" or "El Chamula Mayor".

In 2012, the leader of Los Oaxacos, Hector Antonio Salazar Monzon, alias "El Oaxaco", was murdered. He worked under Alfonso Arzate Garcia, alias "El Aquiles", high-ranking member of the Sinaloa Cartel.

  1. I wonder if he would have taken a different path in life if only his lunch money wasn’t stolen every day as a tyke. These clowns act out because they couldn’t survive without the gang.

    1. If it’s standalone, “Pecas”, then yes. If it’s “El Pecas” I would say it’s “The Freckled One”.

    4. 1:28 hey mx im 1:14 didnt want to get involved but to be honest i dont like people like 5:02 who tryes to correct people and get it wrong too, translating a manta word by word from spanish to english is a pain in the ass specially cause in mexico we use a lot of regional language! Spanish is a really bast language and sometimes theres not a word you can translate to english! Like "chimuelo" in english you can translate it to "tooth less" but in reality "tooth less" is spanish is "sin diente" its complicated, so just do what your doing you are doing a really good job, and if you get a wors wrong it dont matter as long as you get your point across,
      By the way in my first post i didnt ment to tag you i was gonna tag 5:02 just to let him know its not "freckle" its "the freckle"

    6. 5:51 - Don't worry I didn’t take your suggestion negatively, even if it wasn’t for me. 😊 I enjoy it when readers comment and are genuinely curious or thoughtful about our material. There’s been times where readers correct me on details and I’m happy to fix them.

      I do agree that Spanish is very rich and complex and that there could be various interpretations of a word when translated. But your comment made sense so I changed it.

      Thank you for taking the time to respond back!

    1. Most narcos will go by unnoticed and you'd never imagined they are cold killers.

      This kid indeed looked soft but that's probably what their superiors wanted for whatever he did.

      A squad leader isn't a big thing in the organization.

    2. I mean these dudes kill abunch of foos that are tied up. Until the day they get caught slipping. Cuz when they see govt they run and hide and all that shit. Catch foos slippin and get caught slippin. They arent really any real killers. Just a bunch of mata-amarrados homie. Or kill foos that are just defenseless and/or in very vulnerable positions. They rarely go at it when the playing field is even why? Because in reality theyre all a bunch cowards. I mean look at the dude. He was a slap away from being tyrones bitch in Folsom

    3. @9:11 You are correct he was no street soldado if that's what you mean but most "g's" will kill amarrados aquí y en China, it's how it works.

      A real shootout only happens between ex military hitmen usually.

      This kiddo chose the wrong profession for sure tho.

  15. There are ALOT of Oaxaceños and other Southern Mexicanos that came to the San Quintin area years ago when the Big Ag projects/ empresas came in. The #1 highway used to be lined with families literally living in not much more than cardboard/ carton shacks and tarps, a piece of plywood and corrugated metal was rare. Now most of that is hidden behind the huge fancy façades of the gigantic corporate facilities and / or there are farm worker shelters, living quarters, even schools for the burgeoning population. A lot of push for more Ag workers rights too. The Ag scene there exploded w expansion and population growth. Entire towns and ejidos have grown up all through the area. I have always felt there is a lot more " there" there, ie illegal crops etc being grown along with all those organic strawberries, just further out. Well, we know that is the case if any of you remember all of some of BB's posts on fields of mota or poppies being busted over the years. San Quintin area has seen exponential growth and migration for Ag labor and along with that came ever more poverty, drugs and violence in the expanding barrios.
    Down south in BCS the same thing is happening in Vizcaino, what used to be a tiny spot on the map between Gro Negro and Santa Rosalia ( how convienent geographically, right smack between the two Port towns, Santa Rosalia w the ferry crossing from Sinaloa and Gro Negro on the Pacific to the West.) Now, Vizcaino and its surrounding desert have been basically clearcut of Native plants for huge Ag production and another migration of Mainland Mexicanos came in for jobs/ work. Sadly, both pretty rough places with lots of marginalized people and crime. Plus COVID and the drought, Yikes.
    Recipe for further disaster.

  16. Yaqui is the scholar for this area. Remember, years ago and recently, many people are El Guero, and of origins of Mennonites, Mormon, Spanish blood and Ex-pats. When I speak in English, they are confused. This is a reply to the post, but the extraneous detailed commentary is pure Yaqui.

  17. It seemed like forever when BB was down. Yaqui, MX, OGs…you all bring what seems like another world into focus. Sol brings it into sharp contrast as well. I follow this news because I believe it will become better some day - Mexico and it’s people are too beautiful to fail as a whole; I also help create this news as I fight day in and day out to better myself and kick the dependencies. Godspeed.
