CDS Los Salazar's El Zabe Suspected in Family Killing in San Luis Río, Sonora

"HEARST" for Borderland Beat

A family driving in San Luis Río Colorado, Sonora, was gunned down by a group of armed men, killing a young mother and her 5-year-old daughter. Online articles all point to Sinaloa Cartel's Los Salazars as being behind the hit for unknown reasons.

The Shooting
On the afternoon of August 2, 2021, a family of three was traveling in their gray Jeep Gladiator pickup truck in the Progreso neighborhood, on the east side of San Luis Río Colorado city, Sonora. At approximately 4:10pm*, an unknown group of armed men opened fire out of their late model gray Jeep Grand Cherokee SUV, shooting towards the family's vehicle indiscriminately. The group of armed men then drove away in an unknown direction and managed to flee the area shortly after the shooting began.



Witnesses to the attack called the emergency services line to report what they had just seen. Within minutes police officers and paramedics arrived on scene. Inside the shot up Jeep Gladiator, they found 5 year old Alejandra bleeding from multiple gun shot wounds, one in the head. Her mother, 26 year old Isabel Alejandra was also found to be bleeding heavily as she had sustained multiple head wounds, located behind the left ear. Next to her, the driver, a 48 year old** male named Arturo was sitting, badly injured as well. 

Arturo and Alejandra were sent to be treated at a US hospital in San Luis, Arizona. The mother, Isabel Alejandra was sent to the local Mexican Social Security Institution (IMSS). At approximately 8:00pm, just a few hours later, Isabel died from her injuries while receiving treatment. 


After many hours of fighting for her life in the Arizona hospital, five year old Alejandra also died from her injuries. Arturo is reportedly still recovering from his injuries in the same hospital. Doctors report that his injuries are considered to be non life threatening. 

Young Alejandra's death was officially announced to the public by Isabel's sister Anna on social media. Anna wrote of her niece "You are with your mommy now, princess of my heart."

Ten .223 caliber casings were recovered at the crime scene. The motive for the attack is currently unclear. Arturo reportedly sells used cars on Avenida Libertad in San Luis Rio Colorado in Colonia Bureaucrat area.


The Theories
It is unknown if the hitmen intended to kill the whole family or if the two women were simply collateral damage in an attack intended for Arturo. It is also possible that the family was misidentified by the gunmen and the hit was not targeted at them.

Curiously, multiple online publications have published allegations that Los Salazar's Eduardo Molina Flores, alias "El Zabe" was behind the attack, but these publications do not cite any source or evidence supporting this claim.


There are a number of possible reasons why they could be making this allegations.

It could be because the Los Salazar's influence in the San Luis Rio Colorado area is so prominent that it would be unthinkable to consider another cartel was behind the hit. It is also possible that El Zabe is considered to specifically be in charge of the city.

It could be because the writers behind these articles are privy to some off the record knowledge about the crime that implicates El Zabe, such as an aspect of Arturo's identity that they legally cannot disclose at this time.

It could also be based on unfounded local rumor.

Regardless of the reason behind these allegations, until further details emerge it will be impossible to say why this attack happened and who was behind it. More information about this attack will hopefully emerge and updates will follow.




Please Note
* In Tribuna's first article they say the attack occurred at 4:10pm, in their second article they say it occurred around 3:30 pm. 

** In most publications Arturo is described as 48 years old but Opinion Sonora says he is 49 years old.

  6. To soon to say, they are just speculations. Looks like the Jeep has tint and the shooters didn’t intend on killing the females. I 100% blame the gunmen, but what kind of man would put his family in danger like that (if in fact Arturo was some kind of Target and if he was involved in organized crime)

  8. Speedy Mares will have to have a long talk with his compadre El Zabe. The Mares clan, along with all of CAF, do not approve of killing innocent civilians.

  20. That fat pig needs to be slaughtered all these plaza bosses are some of the ugliest motherfuckers Ive ever seen out side the San Bernardino court house in downtown Berdoo ! And thats saying a lot what a fucking upside world youve become Mexico its very unfortunate you volunteered to be the drug supplier for the first world look what its doing to you. You are all thought of as child murdering cartel fodder just waiting for your day to come when its your head on the wall and a blanket telling the world what a piece of shit you were . You think an entire nation of people would have an agenda to take back the world around them but I guess you get pretty comfy living in fear its prbly easier to just stay indoors and fall in line . Apparently thats the case .Fortunately we have a second amendment to keep our govt. In check and it pares nicely with our appetite for shitty drugs made by shitheads mixing chemicals in the forrest thinking they are actually chemists lol ! A monkey could do the same job if you forced it to with a gun to its head and apparently someone has . What a joke .

    3. 4:35 Mèxico did not finance the war ON drugs for more than 12 years at 3 billion dollars a year to steal drug trafficking back from mexican cartels, and Mèxico did not invent drug trafficking to the US either.
      Don't be ignorant and a pendejo at the same time...

  24. Jeeps is still menacing military grade confusion that can lead to getting your ass all shoot up, that they are junk material before the warranty expires does not matter much...
    Better to drive vochito made into a truck with a Cadillac or Lincoln front end, but they ain't nobody safe as long as melitary, cuicos, police corporations and their great big bosses stay in their bases and comandancias pampering their yellow crime scena tapes instead of guarding the city checkpoints and exits and entrances, I understand that is a halcon job cartels get done for free...
