Three Killed, Three Injured After Gunmen Attack on Mechanic Shop in Yautepec, Morelos

By "El Huaso" for Borderland Beat

Three were killed and another three were injured after gunmen attacked a motorcycle mechanic shop in Yautepec, Morelos. In the neighboring state Guanajuato, attacks against these types of businesses are linked to the sale of drugs and stolen fuel.

The attack occurred around 2:30 pm on March 7th at a mechanic shop in the Otilio Montaño neighborhood of Yautepec, Morelos state. Local news reported that the attackers arrived in a car and a motorcycle and opened fire at the business and those inside and nearby. Three were killed, and three more were injured by gunfire, one of them a pregnant woman. No suspects have been captured.

This attack bears a resemblance to attacks against tire repair shops, or "vulcanizadoras" in the neighboring state of Guanajuato. In Guanajuato, at least 138 tire repair shops have been violently attacked over the last decade, leaving over 200 dead. These attacks are related to the fight between the CJNG and CSRL, two groups who have infiltrated tire repair shops, installing networks for merchandizing stolen fuel and methamphetamine. Both groups attack each others shops, used as selling spots.
