Confrontation Between Municipal Police and Hitmen in Taxco, Guerrero

Last Thursday, October 6th, Elements of the Municipal Preventive Police of Taxo, Guerrero, Mexico held an intense shootout with a group of unknown hitmen, leaving six dead. Police also found the dead body of a man in the hitmen's security house. The man had been abducted just a few hours earlier.

The preventive police said that they had responded to an emergency call that reported one man being abducted in a black 4-door Jetta by a group of strangers in the neighborhood "Pedro Martin". The victim tried to fight back but then ceased when threatened with large assault rifles by the criminals.

A few minutes after arriving at the scene, the police spotted the black Jetta arriving at a house nearby, which was later confirmed to be a security house owned by a cartel and had been given to the hitmen to perform the organization's daily cirminal activities. When the police approached the vehicle the criminals immediately opened fire at the police and thus a long confrontation began which lasted about 20 minutes. The police killed all six hitmen in the confrontation and after searching the security house they found what appeared to be the body of the kidnapped victim. The man had been tied, blindfolded, stabbed, and had a large cut wound across his stomach with the knife still lying in the gash.
