Guanajuato bar attack. Armed men enter the “Monkeys” bar in Celaya, Guanajuato, Mexico, and shoot the employees. The terrifying video is circulating on social networks.

The authorities only reported that two men on a motorcycle were detained moments after the attack on the place. Despite the seriousness of the attack, no deaths were reported, and only one injured worker, whose state of health is unknown, is recovering in a hospital.

This attack takes place amid a spiral of violence in this state. Throughout the country, the death toll already exceeds by far that of other years, with more than 100,000 to date, in one of the worst political and social scenarios in Mexico, where many murders are linked to organized crime, it was reported about the attack on a bar in Guanajuato. Remember, there was another shooting in a Guanajuato bar (Lexus, in Apaseo el Alto) not long ago. On that occasion, the attack ended with several fatalities and was connected to the CSRL (Cartel Santa Rosa de Lima).

Through social networks, it can be seen in a video of the business that the men arrive and intimidate those present, both customers and employees, so they pass from one side to another. However, it is not known what they wanted, but the worst would come later because no one could stop them.

The men realized that the employees called the 911 emergency system, so they began shooting at the two cashiers in the place. However, they reacted quickly and hid under the bar to avoid being hit by bullets. To see the video, click here.

Despite her quick movement, the employee could not avoid being wounded because when the attackers were leaving, one of them returned and shot towards the bar to try to hit one of the women. Still, when he could not, he jumped over the bar and looked for her. Without further ado, he pointed the gun at her when he found her.

It was then that he showed no mercy. In a matter of seconds, his finger pulled the trigger of his pistol and hit one of them. It is seen that he tries to fire another shot, but his gun does not seem to work, so he hurries to run out of the place before the police arrive to help.

THERE ARE ALREADY DETAINED
