Nine People Killed In Bar Shooting

Mexican National Guard

Tuesday night, nine people were killed and two others wounded in a shooting in Guanajuato, Mexico.

In Apaseo el Alto, armed individuals attacked a bar close to 9 p.m. on Wednesday night, police said.

Despite the fact that no suspects have been identified, posters left behind referred to a criminal group. This is a common practice for cartels to leave messages and posters after killing someone.

Local authorities announced that additional law enforcement, including the National Guard, would be deployed to the area following the shooting.

A bar shooting in Irapuato, also in Guanajuato, left 12 people dead in October. A separate shooting killed 10 people in September.

The New York Post reported that one of the letters left behind by the Santa Rosa de Lima gang read “Get the f–k out of here you motherf—ers.”

In the letter, the bar’s owners were accused of supporting the rival Jalisco cartel to the Santa Rosa de Lima gang.
