Retired Police Officer is Murdered

Alberto Camacho Feliciano, a 37 year old retired sergeant of the Municipal Police Force of Xochistlahuaca, Acapulco, was found dead yesterday morning in his farm house.

According to investigators, Feliciano was cut and stabbed with a machete and finally shot dead. His wife became concerned when he didn't return from the farm late at night. She didn't worry about Feliciano until the next morning because he would usually go out at night to the farm house and stay there until early in the morning.

After realizing something was wrong, Feliciano's wife headed out to the farm house at around 11 am only to find Feliciano's dead body lying in a puddle of blood. Investigators pointed out that Feliciano's perpetrators knew about Felicianos daily routines and waited for the right moment to strike. It was an obviously planned and premeditated killing.

Confrontation between Military and Gunmen in Michoacan

A confrontation around noon today between the Mexican Military and a group of hitmen in Michoacan resulted in 3 dead gunmen, 3 dead civilians, and 1 military officer.

The group of hitmen were riding in 3 luxury trucks on a very transited avenue at around 11:40 am today. A military convoy that passed them on the opposite side of the street noticed what appeared to be assault rifles poking out from one of the hitmen's windows. The military proceeded to detain the vehicles but the men refused to stop and thus began a shootout between the Military and the unkown gunmen.

After the persecution and confrontation that lasted around 20 minutes, the military seized all three trucks, 30 hand-gun clips, 1100 AK-47 magazines, 320 AR-15 magazines, various tactical gear, and captured the remaining hitmen.
