Apatzingan, Mich., 18 April 2016.- A exautodefensa from Apatzingan and alleged criminal leader was killed along with three others when attacked by gunfire in streets of Apatzingan.
The incident took place around 17:50 hours on Monday.
According to witnesses, on a street determined by Donato Bravo Izquierdo Oriente, Colonia Centro, time appeared circulating speeding truck BMW X3 one black color, which was apparently chased by two other trucks.
It was shortly before arriving at the offices of the PRD that the crew of the BMW were hit and attacked and killed by the crew of the other two trucks.
The bullets hit the driver who lost his life and control of the truck, which ended up crashing into a parked car.
Inside the van they were the bodies of three people, one of them identified as Francisco Licea, alias "El Guero", who along with his brothers allegedly integrates the criminal organization known as Los Hermanos Licea, which operate in Apatzingan.
Also, a man identified as Ruben P., 36 years old, who was passing by, was hit by bullets and died when receiving medical attention.
A major police mobilization was seen at the site, which was achieved without a trace of those responsible for the attack.
After completion of the investigation they transfered the body to the Forensic Medical Service nd will be held
It should be noted that El Guero Licea is a former commander of the Autodefensas linked to the Jalisco New Generation Cartel and who along with his brothers allegedly holding an organization dedicated to drug trafficking and other illicit activities.
Local social media is saying 3 as well. 2 were in the car as you can see in the pic. And one was a pedestrian. El universal got the players involved mixed up. I wouldn't trust their account of this story. The source I'm using is a local editorial. T
YouTube video above shows that the viagras and los licea were threatening each other over their radios.
They were enemies not allies. And they are currently fighting for the plaza in apatzingan. This wasn't their first attempt on his life. A couple of months ago they shot up his house. The viagras have been after him for a while. They finally got him it seems in an ambush after meeting with polinarcos
Also to further prove that 3 died the impacts of the bullets are concentrated on the front end of the truck. If there was an extra rear passenger that died the rear passenger side would have gotten hit as well. As you could see in the picture above there were hardly any impacts on the rear part of the truck. Seems they came up on the left sided of the truck pumped a lot of rounds into the front side of the car with high power rifle rounds hitting el Guero, his passenger and a pedestrian walking on that side of the street. Where the rounds might have passed through the windows and hit the pedestrian.
Makes a lot more sense then what El Universal is presenting.
