During the night of May 30, residents of the municipality of Teocaltiche, Jalisco, reported the presence of armed men and intense clashes along several streets in the community (in western Mexico).
According to the reports, which were made public on social networks, alleged hired killers from the Sinaloa Cartel and Jalisco New Generation were the cause of the terror they sowed among the inhabitants: they are disputing control of the area.
As reported in American Post News, alleged members of the Sinaloa Cartel and the New Generation Cartel (CJNG) also maintain a dispute between the borders of the state of Chiapas and Guatemala.
