Sunday October 23rd, information of two of the principal enemies of the Tijuana Cartel arrived to Culiacan, Sinaloa. Monday October 23rd, Aquiles sent a discrete small group of three hitman with handguns hidden in a secret compartment of a vehicle.
In Guadalajara, Jalisco the boss of the Aguascalientes “Plaza” known as “El 30″ was waiting for them in order to support Aquiles. They knew that the following day, Tuesday one of the enemies was going to eat at a restaurant. The enemy eats at the expected restaurant, in an exclusive area of Zapopan, Jalisco.
The area was highly patrolled by the State police, the famous “Zapopanos”, that's why they couldn't assassinate him at the place. At the moment that the sicarios followed him they lost him because they were unfamiliar with the city, the plan of the group of sicarios was ruined, and they decided to go back to their hotel and the people from Aguascalientes decided to bring more “Alcones” (Punteros as they known them in Tijuana=Lookouts).
Information from the other enemy awaits, this is “El Gross”, Wednesday goes by without any news, the sicarios wait all day with anxiety and fear, because they were operating in a Plaza where they were not supposed to be, in addition to the people of “El 30″, who are known in the area because they Guadalajara and Aguascalientes are neighbors.
Thursday 27th arrived, and at 12:00PM information from Tijuana of where “El Gross” was going to eat is received, the sicarios get ready and head to the restaurant, a small popular small business but the area where the sicarios were staying at was far from the place and the sicarios got lost.
The informant, who was tracking the location of “El Gross” from Tijuana, informs that “El Gross” had already left the restaurant but that he will try to locate him once again. The sicarios decided to move to that area, the Colonia Alcalde Barranquitas. They find a hotel in the area, the Brasil Hotel, they settle and request Tijuana to met with the informant directly, Tijuana denies personal access to the informant but they finally accepted for the well being of the operation.
They met in a coffee shop, “El 30″ received the information and makes new plans, he decides that the hit would be more effective on a motorcycle because the informant told him that “El Gross” would be alone of with another one and no “punteros”around (Punteros=Lookouts). The informant makes an appointment with “El Gross” but “El Gross” tells him that he cannot make it, however he commits a tragic mistake, he told him, “I cant because I have to go to the barbershop”, the informant had already been to the barbershop with “El Gross” in the past.
Immediately he dials the sicarios and takes them to the place. In this situation a hit-man from “El 30″ was driving the motorcycle and the passenger from Culiacan would shoot him. They arrived at the indicated place, a modest barbershop, they confirm their objective, they affirm, positive, it was him. The motorcycle gets on the sidewalk, the passenger gets off shooting a Pietro Beretta 9mm.
“El Gross” dies instantly, the sicarios leave the scene, they get picked up a few blocks away and taken out of the “Hot zone”, mission accomplished was informed to Culiacan and Tijuana, they made it all the way to the kitchen of “El Mencho”.
