Nineteen people shot dead at clandestine cockfight as Mexican drug gang violence worsens

Nineteen people were killed when gunmen opened fire on a clandestine fight in Mexico. It was one of the worst shooting incidents in Mexico in recent years.

Sixteen men, and three women, were killed in Las Tinajas, a venue located in the western coast state of Michoacan. This is one of the most lawless regions in Mexico on Sunday.

As the Jalisco New Generation Cartel, a powerful criminal organization, fights local gangs to control drug routes, violence has been rising in the town.

By the time President Andres Manuel Obrador was elected in 2018, gang violence was causing record levels of crime. He pledged to reduce organised criminality using a less confrontational approach.


However, widespread troubles persist and the average annual murder rate is on track to surpass all records for any Mexican government since the beginning of modern records.
