Six dead criminals was the result of a chase and confrontation with municipal, state and federal police corporations on the Celaya-Salvatierra highway in the first minutes of this Saturday.
The events occurred at approximately 12:20 am when the Municipal Police received a report of vehicles with armed people moving south, for which the support of FSPE, National Guard and SEDENA was requested, alerting the State Attorney General’s Office (FGE).
It was in the section between Santa María del Refugio and Rincón de Tamayo where a chase began and the civilians opened fire on the uniformed men, who in turn repelled the attack.
In the first community, a vehicle overturned and two of the armed men were killed, one in the vehicle and the other in the vicinity.
Then, under the Rincón de Tamayo bridge, the exchange of fire continued and the crew of a black pickup truck were gunned down and were killed, counting four bodies at the site.
Some wore tactical vests and long weapons, including among the signs a fragmentation grenade was found and one of the bodies was wearing a helmet, like those used by corporations.
The people in other vehicles were able to escape and a search operation continued.
