The inhabitants blocked several points of the municipality due to the constant harassment of organized crime, but the soldiers confiscated their weapons and that sparked their anger
Michoacán .- Inhabitants of the community of La Huacana, Michoacán, subjected elements of the Mexican Army to return the weapons of a large caliber that had previously confiscated them for having blocked several points of the community.
The fact can be seen in a video that has been spreading on social networks, where the anger of the people is shown after two civilians died during a confrontation between elements of the Army and alleged assassins.
Everything began, according to Quadratín, because the residents of the aforementioned town reported the constant harassment of organized crime and blocked several armed townships. In response, the Army carried out an operation and confiscated the heavy weapons from the settlers.
Later they ran into heavily armed individuals and a shootout was unleashed, leaving two civilians killed by stray bullets, which greatly annoyed the inhabitants of La Huacana as innocents were also injured and blamed the Army for what happened. The soldiers were stripped of their weapons and humiliated by the aggressors.
So far it is known that the military continues to be held, so an operation was activated for a possible rescue by SEDENA.
