Jalisco Cartel – New Generation unleashes clashes and attacks against authorities in Tocumbo, Michoacán

First reports indicate that at least a hundred heavily armed individuals mobilized from the municipality of Sahuayo; 10 alleged CJNG members were reported killed. 

Michoacán – A large group from the Jalisco Cartel – New Generation (CJNG) unleashed a series of clashes in the municipality of Tocumbo, Michoacán, after bursting in hidden in cargo vehicles and attacking authorities from the three levels of government.

Initial reports indicate that at least a hundred heavily armed individuals moved from the municipality of Sahuayo in cargo trucks.

The convoy advanced towards the municipality of Cotija and, hiding in cargo trucks, broke into La Laguneta, located in the mountainous part of the town of Santa Inés, municipality of Tocumbo.

Inhabitants of the area reported the mobilization of the criminals, so police from the municipalities of Cotija, Tocumbo, Tingüindín, Los Reyes and Peribán went to the area, where they were met with gunfire and explosives by the criminal group.

Mexican Army and Civil Guard personnel went to support the local authorities and were also attacked by the cell identified with the CJNG.

The place was also flown over by a military helicopter, which the criminal group attacked from the ground with Barrett .50 caliber assault rifles.

Mexican Army commanders who maintain surveillance and operations in this region near the state of Jalisco emphasized that the personnel of the aircraft descended and joined in response to the attacks.

The sources consulted reported that during the clashes, which lasted at least three hours, a man known as “El Gafe”, who was allegedly the leader of the offensive orchestrated by the CJNG’s elite group, known as Delta, was killed,

They revealed that once “El Gafe” – and other armed men – had been killed, the rest of the criminal group stopped shooting and fled to the highlands, where they are already being sought by authorities from the three levels of government.

The preliminary figure is 10 presumed members of the CJNG killed and it is expected that in the next few hours the Attorney General’s Office will announce the official balance of this episode of violence.


The Ejército Mexicano kills 10 CJNG assassins in the community of Cotija, Michoacan, securing weapons and tactical equipment with insignia; as well as 1 truck with gunshot wounds after the confrontation between armed civilians and military elements.”
