12 Killed As Gunmen Attacked A Bar In Mexico

No fewer than twelve (12) people, including six women and six men, were killed after unidentified gunmen opened fire at a bar in Mexico’s Irapuato, local authorities told Reuters.

At the cause of the event, three people were likewise injured in the attack in the south of Irapuato.

This is the second mass shooting in the state of Guanajuato in less than a month and comes at a time when Mexico has been witnessing a rise in gun attacks. The reason behind the attack is yet to be ascertained.


In an official statement, the city government said that the security forces are trying to nab the assailants. Deadly attacks by gunmen have shone a spotlight on the violence which has been plaguing Mexico for years. Guanajuato is a major manufacturing hub and production site for many of the world’s top carmakers and has been convulsed in recent years by brutal turf wars between rival drug gangs.

Earlier in September, gunmen shot dead ten people at a bar in the Guanajuato town of Tarimoro, about 60 miles (96 km) southeast of Irapuato.

On October 6, gunmen opened fire at city hall in the state of Guerrero, killing more than a dozen people, including the city mayor.

When President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador came to power in 2018, he vowed to reduce record levels of gang violence in Mexico. However, he has been struggling to contain the bloodshed and violence.

While homicides have fallen somewhat in 2022, the tally during Lopez Obrador’s six-year term is on track to be the highest in Mexico’s modern history by a substantial margin. He has blamed corruption in past governments for fuelling the lawlessness.
