At least six were left dead after several clashes registered in the municipalities of Tomatlán and Teocaltiche.
The first case occurred in Rancho La Clementina, in the municipality of Tomatlán. The shooting occured between personnel of the Secretariat of the Navy and armed individuals.
Unofficially at least three attackers lost their lives.
The second case occurred in Teocaltiche, where there was a confrontation between two armed groups in the central zone.
Municipal police intervened and two of them were injured.
The confrontations between the armed subjects by diverse points. At the junction of Juárez and Orquídea, a man without life was found; another was reported on Libramiento at the Juarez crossing. When the paramedics arrived, they only found a pool of blood. At the junction of Juarez and Jalostotitlan road reported another deceased. Likewise, when the paramedics arrived, they only found the pool of blood.
In the last two cases, the witnesses said that the hit men took them, but that both were already dead.
After the clashes this weekend in Teocaltiche and Tomatlan with four injured and four deaths respectively, the head of the Office of the Attorney General, Raúl Sánchez Jiménez, said that he has acted forcefully to protect the safety and tranquility of the inhabitants.
"The Office of the Prosecutor has acted forcefully, the Fuerza Unica was sent to Teocaltiche, the Black Helicopter of heavy artillery to protect society and to be in coordination with Zacatecas authorities to be working on the lines of investigation," said Sánchez Jiménez.
He added that work is being done to find out which criminal groups were confronted and why the assaults, in addition to strengthening security in the northern border of Jalisco.
For his part, the Secretary General of Government, Roberto López Lara, mentioned in an interview that the confrontation between gunmen in Teocaltiche was by a group that came from a party in Zacatecas and faced another criminal gang in this northern municipality in Jalisco.
The result: "Two mildly injured police officers and two mild civilians," he reported.
As for the operation in Tomatlan, both the prosecutor and the Secretary General of the Government reiterated that it was an investigation that the Navy was already carrying out, they detected a ranch with weapons and the confrontation took place where four civilians were killed and the weapons seized.
In both events there were no detainees, the attorney general reiterated.
"We are acting forcefully, the order of the Governor is to give tranquility to society with the strong hand without bending efforts" and said Sanchez Jimenez that is what they are doing in coordination with federal police, the army, the state and municipalities.
Despite these two events over the weekend, Roberto López assured that in the Metropolitan Area there is security for the people who, since last Friday, went to the plazas and shopping centers for the Buen Fin.
"It can be very quiet in the Metropolitan Area people have come to all places since Friday and until now we have white balance and so we will continue, there is great coordination with the security forces," he said.
I just found out Tuesday morning reading through GDL Informa facebook page about the shootout beetwen cartel members and Semar in Tomatlan, Jalisco. GDL Informa is a really good site for anybody out there looking for information about Guadalajara, Jalisco.
GDL Informa stated that Mexican Marines where actually driving in particular cars like a Hummer, Silverado double cab, and two Ford Lobos just to name a few, before arriving to the ranch called "La Trementita" once the Marines arrived the criminal cell started shooting, so the Marines fired back killing at least four individuals. I am thinking this might of been an undercover operation by the Marines or had information of someone living in the rancho who knows.
Ever since Mencho rose up to power Guadalajara, Jalisco, has seen a spike in homicides especially in the metropolitan areas of Tlaquepaque, and Tonala, in October 2017 according to GDL Informa there where about 110 homicides. I think that it was a big mistake by Mencho killing so many cops in ambushes in 2015 after one of his top lieutenants El Gringo in-charge of the armed wing of CJNG was killed by fuerza unica in Jalisco. The federal government seems to be putting pressure on Mencho and this might be why so many executions lately in Jalisco.
There has been rumors on internal conflict within CJNG cells in Jalisco, for example, today 5 people executed thrown out in the fields in Juanacatlan, Jalisco, or the other day Nov 18, 2017, a day a dismembered, decapitated burned body was found link down.
Sr. Mencho tends to hide in rural towns or cities like Tonaya, Tomatlan, El Grullo, and Tepatitlan close to mountains where getting away can be easier than living in the city. Back in 2012 in Tonaya, Jalisco, that was the first federal operation done by Policia Federal against Mencho, and it was reported that six bodyguards died during that raid.
The last known operation to capture Mencho was done by the Mexican Marines and Fuerza Unica, in Tepatitlan, Jalisco, Mencho was hiding five blocks aways from the municipal presidency.
I remember hearing about that. Something about a meeting with el Azul, Mencho and el Erick. Everyone got away moments before except for Erick el 85. But yes, I hear tell of convoys of armed men in los Altos (south and east of GDL). I assume they are either Mencho's guys or los Cuinis guys.
Another mistake by CJNG it appears that drug dealers are selling Crystal Meth to the people of Jalisco. There has been so many armed robberies, home invasions, it is really bad the situation in Jalisco a lot of murders every day.
