According to the Municipal Police, a group of people traveling in vehicles shot at the uniformed officers who were traveling in their artillery units in one of the Marqués de Comillas ejidos.

The communities are divided due to the presence of organized crime groups, and whenever the Sedena elements patrol, they are rejected and accused of supporting a certain criminal gang, without this information having been verified.
