Celaya, Guanajuato: Subject Killed After Attacking Police Officers With Fragmentation Grenade

"Sol Prendido" for Borderland Beat

This is the third attack against elements of the Municipal Police so far this week

The incident took place in the Soriana parking lot on 12 de Octubre Avenue. 

Elements of the Municipal Police received an attack with a fragmentation grenade by subjects who were on board a motorcycle, which triggered a chase, and armed confrontation and the death of one of the allegedly involved.

This is the third attack against elements of the Municipal Police so far this week.

Around 6:00 p.m. this Thursday, the attack was recorded when police elements carried out surveillance and prevention patrols on Avenida 12 de Octubre, near the Soriana commercial store.

The Ministry of Citizen Security reported, through a statement, that the uniformed men were attacked for no reason by two people who were riding a motorcycle, where a fragmentation grenade was thrown at them, which, when detonated, failed to injure anyone.

A chase immediately began for those responsible, starting on Camino a San José de Guanajuato and later they entered Mar Caribe street on the Nuevo Celaya neighborhood, until they reached Orozco street, where the alleged perpetrators got off the motorcycle.

In the area it was learned that the alleged perpetrators of the attack entered a house, and elements of Public Security followed them.

According to official information, one of the subjects tried to fire a firearm at the officers, but was neutralized, while the second managed to flee.

The subjects were riding a motorcycle, which was a few meters from the house. Therefore, the cordoning was carried out in several streets around this event in the Nuevo Celaya neighborhood.

At the scene, the black motorcycle was secured, without license plates, which is being investigated if it has a report of theft, in addition to an AR-15 long weapon.

The processing of the scene, evidence and testimonies was undertaken by the Attorney General of the State of Guanajuato (FGEG) in order to determine who the assailants were. 

Part of the parking lot of the commercial plaza was cordoned off and vehicles entering and leaving were being checked.

  1. These cops have the proper training, , call for back up set up a perimeter, not afraid to shoot back.
    Others tend to let the criminals flee.

  2. CJNG Grupo Elite RR territory

  3. What a cowardly attack to throw a grenade and run. They could have killed a child nearby. Good work by the Celaya police. Mexico is slowly moving forward.
