North America (Times of Ocean)- State authorities confirmed that nine people, including three women, were shot early Wednesday morning in Atlixco, a town in central Mexico’s Puebla state.
The Puebla Attorney General’s Office said one survivor was “in critical condition,” with shots to the head, leg, and shoulder.
In a press conference, Puebla Governor Miguel Barbosa said, “Everything points to this being an inter-gang killing.”
He said preliminary investigations indicate that the house where the victims were attacked was a drug distribution and sales location, according to Xinhua.
The governor announced via social media that federal, regional, and local authorities launched a joint operation following the attack.
