The shootout lasted hours reportedly passed through;  Paseo de El Mineral,  la avenida Huicot before advancing to colonias Plutarco Elías Calles, Lomas de Plateros, Ampliación Azteca and Emiliano Zapata among others. 

A barrage of calls to the 066 emergency system was made by citizens awakened in the various areas by gun blasts.  Not until 2 hours into the conflict a Special Forces convoy arrived to give support to soldiers.

The gunfire ceased at approximately 1:40 am on the road leading to the town of Valparaiso.
Zetas and the Golfo Cartels are vying for Fresnillo.

“Just yesterday “unidades regionales de seguridad” were inaugurated in Rïo Grande and Villa de Cos, north and east from Fresnillo respectively, good thing because they are covering heated areas, there´s another one under construction in Sombrerete (where there were reports of shootings last night too, but no confirmation or any press note about it) and another one being built in Malpaso (south of the capital), so once all these are operative looks like many of the heated areas should have much more protection, the exception being the west side of the state, Villanueva comes to mind since a lot has been happening in that area”
