A bloody battle between CJNG, Sinaloa Cartel, and La Oficina is what took place Sunday evening in the municipality of Ecarnacion de Diaz, Jalisco. The outcome of this fierce battle was two sicarios killed and two wounded. The wounded sicarios were transported to the city of Aguascalientes to receive medical treatment where they were considered as critical. Unofficially, it has been reported that CJNG also kidnapped (levanto) between 4 and 6 people which were loaded onto different trucks and transported to unknown locations.

 After this gun battle, the State Police reinforced patrols on the highways that lead to Aguascalientes. The bloody incident took place Sunday at 2:00 PM in front of a property located at Circuito Rodriguez and Rodriguez street at Calvillo Street in the San Pablo neighborhood in the municipality of Encarnacion de Diaz, Jalisco. According to the preliminary investigation conducted by FGE agents, a meeting between members of Sinaloa Cartel and La Oficina with the agenda to overtake La Plaza of Encarnacion De Diaz was to take place at a residence on that street. Between 8 and 10 males arrived to the meeting driving different vehicles and trucks when suddenly, about 5 pick-up trucks arrived with approximately 20 CJNG sicarios with the intention of kidnapping (levanter) all the attendees of the meeting; however, they encountered resistance on behalf of the Sinaloa Cartel and La Oficina sicarios and a shootout that lasted over 10 minutes ensued.

As a result of this gun fight, two men between the ages of 25 and 35 were killed and whose bodies remained on the ground next to a red Lincoln bearing Aguascalientes tags. Another two men driving a black Ford Explorer with Jalisco tags were severely injured. CJNG was then able to kidnap (levantaron) between 4 and 6 additional people and violently forced them onto their pick-up trucks and fled the area with an unknown direction of travel.

The Incident Caused a Massive Police Mobilization

Police officers from different institutions arrived to the incident location (Officers from Encarnacion de Diaz, state police, municipal police, FGE agents, and Federal Police). Police operations also took place in Lagos de Moreno, Teocaltiche, and Villa Hidalgo, Jalisco as a result of this incident. Assistance to Police agencies in Aguascalientes was also requested in an attempt to intercept the convoy of sicarios in the event that they fled into their territory. For that reason, heavily armed state police officers reinforced patrols on the main highways that connect Aguascalientes and Jalisco. There were no updates as of yesterday night.

The two wounded men were transported via Cruz Roja ambulances to the city of Aguascalientes where they were reported as arriving in a moribund state. The hospital located on Galeana Street was immediately guarded by State Police, Aguascalientes preventive police, and FGE agents. One of the wounded was only identified as 35 year old David AKA El Chino who received six gunshot wounds about the abdomen and legs. The identity of the second wounded individual remains unknown at this time and it is reported that he received four gunshot wounds to the abdomen.

Homicide Detectives with the PME arrived at the hospital to start their investigations. Dozens of spent shell casings, duty belts, weapons, and a Sinaloa Cartel hat were all left behind at the crime scene and collected by investigators. Additionally, 5 vehicles with bullet holes bearing Aguascalientes and Jalisco tags were recovered as well. Personnel with the Jalisco Medical Examiner’s Office removed the bodies of the two me that were killed. Unofficially, it has been reported that the convoy of armed men fled towards Ojuelos, Jalisco where authorities are currently conducting several operations in an attempt to locate them.
