Shootout in Chapultepec, Guadalajara

January 25, 2013

Shots were fired in Guadalajara’s trendy Zona Rosa neighborhood on Friday afternoon as agents from the State Attorney General’s Office (PGJEJ) arrested two suspected kidnappers.

The state agents came under fire at around 2.30 p.m. while pursuing the suspects in a black Nissan Maxima along Lopez Cotilla.

Officials confirmed the arrest of a man and a woman, aged approximately 35 and 25 respectively, one of whom was treated by the Green Cross for gunshot wounds sustained in the firefight.

The incident occurred between General San Martin and Marsella, less than two blocks from Avenida Chapultepec. No one else was hurt but two PGJEJ cars, several civilian vehicles and a local restaurant were hit by stray bullets and at least 18 spent cartridges were found at the scene.

Lopez Cotilla was closed to traffic between Avenida Union/Americas and Chapultepec for at least two hours as agents from Jalisco Institute of Forensic Sciences cordoned off the area.
