Shots and explosions began to be heard around 5:30 in the morning. Residents who came out to see what was happening and observed at least four people fleeing in several vehicles, while the farm caught fire.

Authorities and firefighters arrived at the farm on Calle Privada San Pedro, crossing with Chabacano.

A statement on the morning of October 9 from the Jalisco State Attorney General's Office (FGE) reported that due to the fire they could not confirm if there were people inside, and neither Civil Protection, nor the Jalisco Institute of Forensic Sciences had been able to enter.

About three hours later, emergency services were able to put out the fire and enter the house. On the farm they found five charred bodies (two of them minors) and two injured people who were sent to a hospital.

"We have five people who died inside the house and because of the condition of the bodies, it is only possible to determine that they are two minors and three adults" Police of Tonalá said.
