The deceased escort was left lifeless aboard a Police Interceptor-type vehicle with ESC-12AE license plates from Mexico City, marked as an "escort vehicle".

Juan Carlos Ayala López was a former Corporal of the Mexican Army of the First Battalion of the Military Police of the Presidential Guards Corps. He was serving as a bodyguard for a businessman in the textile industry and the automotive industry that was said to be the target of CJNG hitmen.

The private escort died this Sunday, October 2, during the attempted kidnapping and shooting that took place near the Landmark shopping center, in the Puerta de Hierro neighborhood, in Zapopan, Jalisco.


President of Mexico, Andrés Manuel López Obrador, lamented the shooting on Monday and pointed to the Jalisco New Generation Cartel (CJNG) as the criminal group that was behind the attempted kidnapping of the businessman, whose name has not been revealed.

“According to the preliminary report, they wanted to kidnap a person and they clashed with the escorts. The shooting began and the army intervened (...) Unfortunately, there was one person who lost his life. The injured are from both groups, both the escorts and the criminal aggressors. It seems that he is a businessman who is dedicated to the purchase and sale of vehicles, ”explained this Monday, at the National Palace, the Mexican president.

According to local press reports, the relatives of the other security guard, oblivious to the events and who was injured, requested blood donations for Luis Iván Villalobos López, 28, through social networks.

"At the Puerta de Hierro Hospital they are urgently requesting, 0 negative blood for a victim of yesterday's shooting," detailed the publication, where they detailed that he is in serious condition at the Puerta de Hierro Hospital.

“ He immediately tried to protect the people who were running. So, a bullet went through his intestines, and others broke the tibia and fibula of one leg, ”the relatives specified.

The Jalisco prosecutor, Luis Joaquín Méndez Ruiz, confirmed that the balance of the shootout between the military and drug traffickers in the vicinity of the Landmark shopping center, located in the Puerta de Hierro neighborhood, in Zapopan, Jalisco, left one dead and six injured.

Among the injured are a young woman, a food delivery person, a private security guard, a private escort, and two alleged assailants. One of those affected is treated at the Military Hospital, four at the Puerto de Hierro Hospital and one more did not require a transfer.

The head of the Emergency Medical Care System (SAMU), Dr. Yannick Nordín Servín, reported that they were identified as Cirilo González Mancilla, 45, who had a bullet wound in the right buttock; Iván Villalobos, 30 years old, with two impacts, one in the abdomen and the other in the left leg; Luis Raúl Villareal, 45 years old, with an impact on the humerus; Karla Araceli Plascencia Alvizu, 19, with a neck wound; Antonio Israel Hernández Montoya, 25, with a right knee injury; and an unidentified man with a sprained ankle injury, who was seen tripping during the last part of the shootout on video.

    1. Mexico poor?, dont think so... There are lots of other factors to mention than just "cooking" and "farming"... "Mexican people have no brains"... but that push to another direction was given back in 2018. Sounds like you know nothing about Mexico.

  2. The streets look clean and not like American cities filled with trash, used needles and 100s of homeless loitering like zombies! A few decades ago, in international surveys, America had top spot or near the top for peaceful livable cities...and now they are near the bottom of the outhouse!

  3. Does BB have a picture Ines Oseguera?

    1. 4:07 Ya tá vieja la Inés Oseguera, pero yo tambien quiero conocerla, young and sexy fotos.

    2. Hey SIR what’s up? You seen pictures of her? Was she hot back in the day or what?

  4. Jajajaja bet the sicario that tripped trying to escape is the unidentified man who sprained his ankle

  5. Cjng fans tell your heroes to not fuck with rich businesses men, no wonder you have so much money to expand in different states to do the same extorting and kidnappings. Nobody in Guadalajara likes these punks for that, they should change their name because jalisco doesn’t represent them

  6. Damn al Gafe36 se le acabo el corrido.

  7. That guy was talking about USA .... I have relatives from Mexico so it pains me to this, but there they are a bunch of cowards kidnapping people and killing innocent people like cowards .... There is nothing wrong with selling dope, but the ones that do it do it because they r to stupid to do anything else .... Give a person a fighting chance and do it one on one instead of being cowards ... It's sad they turned Mexico into a big ol shi-hole

  8. They are to stupid to realize there is enough money for everybody and the government wouldn't pursue em if they weren't out killing each other and being threats to the public well actually they usually don't pursue em anyway cause they are all corrupt .... Can't fix stupid I guess

  9. And when I say to stupid look at EL CHUPA he was to stupid to realize he had it made until he thought he was good I guess and they went NO CREO YO EL CHUPA WE DONT THINK SO ... NOW HIS DUMBAS- IS ROTTING AWAY IN PRISON
