10 dead in attack on beer distribution warehouse in Mexico

Mexico (Next Media) – Ten people were killed in an attack on a beer distribution center near Monterrey, Mexico on Friday, in what officials said was part of a gang dispute.

An unknown number of armed gunmen arrived at about 3:00 p.m. local time in two vehicles and stormed the plant at Garcia in Monterrey.

The gunmen demanded money from the workers, then stripped some of them naked before opening fire and killing seven people on the scene. Three other victims died at the hospital.

The attackers fled with $838 in cash before police and soldiers arrived on the scene.

State attorney general Nuevo Leon said the “main line of investigation” is that the shooting was connected to a criminal gang dispute.

Leon said that seven kilograms of marijuana was found at the center. He added that guns, ammunition magazines and packages of drug ready to be sold were also found at the beer hall.

The Garcia beer distribution center was known to be used by the Zetas drug cartel, according to state investigators who requested anonymity.
