A couple of days ago, the United States Department of Security asked for a reward of up to five million dollars for truthful information that could lead to the arrest and / or conviction of any of the four children of the Chapo Guzman, leader of the Sinaloa Cartel, as reported by CNN. The statement sent by the government institution, reported this Wednesday, December 15, that “the four are high-ranking members of the Sinaloa cartel and each one is subject to a federal accusation for their participation in illicit drug trafficking.” Joaquín El Chapo Guzmán is serving a life sentence – plus another 30 years – in the United States prison in Florence (Colorado). His wife, Emma Coronel, was sentenced a fortnight ago on drug trafficking and money laundering charges related to her husband’s narcotics empire.

Now it is the Formula media group that has released a video in which a shooting and a fight can be seen that could star in a movie scene. The General Prosecutor of the Republic He has transferred that he will investigate the events, but the truth is that the identity of the subject who appears on the tape has not been confirmed by government authorities. However, Mexican media such as Proceso and El Universal join social networks to indicate that the video could presumably star Aureliano Guzman Araujo, one of El Chapo Guzmán’s nephews.
In Culiacán (Sinaloa)
Although it is now when it comes to light, the violent struggle (with eleven shots included) took place last weekend inside the bar ‘Casanova‘of the city of Culiacán -the largest population in the Mexican state of Sinaloa-. As can be seen in the broadcast, after an argument three armed men fight, shoot at the ceiling and point heads with their weapons. A young man was wounded by a bullet with an impact to the face and another to the leg, but his true state of health has not transpired.
The Secretary of Public Security of the State, Cristóbal Castañeda Camarillo, has recognized that they were attackers, but because they outnumbered the police officers present at the scene of the shooting they had to let them go. Everything happened while the police called for reinforcements that did not arrive on time.
The Mexican newspaper
Process, reports that Castañeda accused the municipal police for not intervening. The politician described the scene in which the armed subjects had five vehicles and the state agents were provided with four motorcycles for which they activated their panic buttons to request reinforcements.
Curiously, Mexican President López Obrador, declared from La Mañanera (his long daily conference before the media) that “there is no impunity for anyone and it is not like it was before”, alluding to the alleged collusion between criminal groups and authorities.
