Neighbors gather near the crime scene while the police investigates the incident

Five members of a family were killed and two more injured on Saturday night by armed men who broke into their home in Leon, Guanajuato. One of the fatal victims was an eleven-year-old girl, a woman and three men. The injured were a minor under 14 and another underaged girl.

The massacre occurred around 7:00 p.m. that night in a house located between Chayote and San Ignacio streets. Neighbors asked for support from the 911 Emergency Service when they heard several shots inside the house.

They reported that at least two subjects entered the building and seconds later fled aboard a red vehicle. Police and paramedics came to aid the injured and found that five of them had died. The injured minors were taken by an ambulance to the nearest hospital.

A surveillance camera captured two armed men entering a building, committing the attack and fleeing in a red car

Elements of the Criminal Investigation Agency (AIC) and personnel from the Forensic Medical Service (SEMEFO) were at the scene to gather evidence. Municipal police officers carried out patrols in near the local bus station, close to where the multi-killing occurred.

It is the fourth attack of this nature in Guanajuato in January 2021. In León, 49 people had been murdered in the first 23 days of January. Another massacre of similar magnitude occurred in an apartment in Villa Insurgentes on January 4. Five people were also killed there as well.

  1. Its crazy how csdl is still alive in guanajuato. This war seems similar to the linea vs gente nueva war in chihuahua back in early 2000's

    1. CSDL was just one faction in Guanajuato. CJNG is now having to deal CSDL backed by El Chango Mendez's Children and their people who are present in Leon with support from Sinaloa like the Nueva Plaza who are the Coroneles and El Cholo's people.

  2. When are we going to get a piece on the Cienfuegos situation? Also would love to hear BB thoughts on AMLO laying the hammer down on the DEA and their covert missions in MX.

    Welcome back btw! Looking forward real coverage.

    1. Open a discussion in the forum!!! People will pitch in.

  3. Every week massacres in our neighbour and not a word from our Wall St controlled government and media.
