MEXICO CITY (AP) — Ten men and a boy were killed and a woman and another boy were wounded in a shooting attack on a home in western Mexico on Saturday.
Prosecutors in the state of Jalisco said the bullet-ridden bodies of the 10 men were found by police on the sidewalk in front of the home. The body of a boy was found inside, and a woman and another boy were located at a local hospital.
The prosecutors’ office said the attack was carried out by unidentified assailants traveling in an SUV.
The state is home to the Jalisco New Generation Cartel, one of Mexico’s most violent and powerful. More bodies have been found in clandestine burial pits in Jalisco there than in any other state in recent years. The cartel has been fighting a breakaway faction in and around Guadalajara.
