Morelia, Michoacán, October 25, 2016 — There have been 12 ambushes against municipal, state, and also federal police forces so far this year in the state of Michoacán. 
In addition, the attacks on law enforcement have left eight police officers injured by gun fire.
The attacks have occurred on state highways, especially in the vicinity of remote communities of the municipalities, as has happened in the most recent events in Acahuato, Cancita and Las Yeguas, in Aguililla y Apatzingán.
There are also cases of attacks against municipal police forces from Ixtlán and Gabriel Zamora that killed two police officers; of the Director of Public Safety of Tiquicheo along the highway Mil Cumbres-Morelia; of Ziracuaretiro and San Pedro Barajas in La Huacana; where a federal highway police officer died and left another one severely injured.
In addition to these violent acts, is the ambush suffered by the mayor of Pungarabato, Ambrosio Soto Duarte, that took the life of the mayor and his driver, and also left two police officers injured along the highway San Lucas-Ciudad Altamirano.
Along with the municipal, state, and federal police forces are also the former autodefensas that became a part of the former Fuerza Rural, and which have also fallen prey to ambushes.

Such was the case of a command of the Fuerza Rural, which was also a victim of an ambush by an armed convoy in San Juan Nuevo Parangaricutiro-Uruapan, which received at least three gunshots in May 2016.
