Translated by O. B. F-W for Borderland Beat from a Milenio article

Elements of the Special Forces confronted presumed criminals in the community of Atzacoaloya; there is one official dead and one injured, informed the Mayor Francisco Javier Garcia.


Presumed integrants of organised crime killed a member of the Special Forces of the State Police and injured another, in the Community of Atzacoaloya, belonging to the Town of Chilapa de Alvarez, Guerrero.

The Municipal President of Chilapa, Francisco Javier Garcia Gonzalez, informs that after the battle last night, personnel of the Mexican Army, the Gendarmeria, and the State Police patrolled the Town and Communities to avoid more confrontations.

While making a patrol in Atzacoaloya, elements of the Special Forces came across presumed organised criminals and had an interchange of gunfire.

In the confrontation a Policeman of the State Special Forces died, and another officer was wounded. On the side of the criminals there are no reports of detainees or injured or dead.

The Mayor Francisco Javier Garcia travelled to Chilpancingo to apply Security reinforcements.

The Municipal President admitted that the Town in his charge, is disputed by the criminal groups Los Ardillos and Los Rojos.

  1. O.B. F-W... Keep up the great work. Thanks for your contribution. The pen is mightier than the sword. A fan from body of Christ TX.

    1. Corpus Christi TX isn't safe either...if only you knew ;)

    2. Every city has crime. I live here and feel safe.

    3. I live here too (my whole life)and have traveled Mexico extensively, not so much in the recent past. Our city has its fair share of criminals. We live on the drug-money corridor. But as a whole, a good city. Over the years, I have seen a change in the demographic, as Mexico wins back lost territory as migrants flood into the area.

  2. Yeah Otis don't let the negative comments and haters put you off your doing a top notch job bud. What larger cartels are the rojos and the ardillas aligned with ?

    1. I believe Los Rojos are connected to Guerreros Unidos cartel and Los Ardillos are connected to Beltran Leyva Organisation, but I stand to be corrected.

  3. This is not the news the govt wants us to know about. Thanks for taking the chances and the get the truth out there.

  4. This belongs in the who cares files

  5. 2 opposing statements above.
