Police Chief Erick Francisco Landagaray is clinging to life and his security escort is recovering from wounds after they were ambushed last night at 10:55 p.m. on Rio Suchiate Blvd. in front of the Pan Bimbo warehouse. Landagaray was flown to Hermosillo at 5:30am where he continues to fight for his life. His guard's injuries aren't life-threatening and he's expected to make a full recovery.

The full story will be uploaded to the RPNO within minutes (I wanted to tell you guys first).

Penasco Police Chief Landagaray shot six times, clinging to life
Police Chief Erick Francisco Landagaray is clinging to life and his security escort is recovering from wounds after they were ambushed last night at 10:55 p.m. on Rio Suchiate Blvd. in front of the Pan Bimbo warehouse.

Security escort Luis Huerta Ibarra sustained several wounds but was listed as being out of danger and is expected to make a full recovery, Chief Landagaray, who was said to have suffered six gunshot wounds, is currently reported in very grave condition and was transported by air to Hermosillo at 5:30 a.m. after emergency surgery.

Witnesses report that Jeep Cherokee SUV was used in the attack.

Municipal, State and Federal law enforcement agencies quickly mobilized in an effort to find those responsible for the attack, which occurred as they made their nightly rounds of the city.

In the aftermath of the incident, rumors were running rampant, among them that a warning message was transmitted over police radios by the assailants or their associates. Also rumored was that there was an attack on the home of Mayor Alejandro Zepeda. As is often the case with rumors, this has proven to be false.

Puerto Penasco Mayor Alejandro Zepeda Munro was at the hospital to offer support to the victims and their families.

“Visitors should know that increased military and police presence on the streets of the city are to be expected as part of the standard operating procedure when something like this happens”, said a high-ranking government official. “The increased patrols are just part of what we do to ensure the safety of our residents and visitors”.

From a commenter on El Impartial:
"Erick is a good person, but that could be seen coming, the control of the town is heavily controlled by people in big league drug and the saddest thing is that everyone knows who you are, where they move, its people and so on. never seen anything like this and yet we hear on the radio and on TV and newspapers statewide "THE BEST DESTINATION PENASCO. The best destination for anyone if we see here impunity, armed people, people with bodyguards. It is a very bad message for Ernesto Munro.

My daughter sent me a text from work earlier saying the cashier there told her there were eight people killed in RP last night. I sent a text back asking where the cashier heard this. The reply I got was "a guy was on his computer (I'm assuming it was a customer, it's a restaurant) and read about it and called border patrol and they confirmed it". Is the killing of the three men at the OXXO, the shooting of the chief and his escort, and the shot up Jeep on the highway all connected??

I'm afraid that one of my first thoughts was "what the hell do you tell your friends now?"... In regards to PP "being a safe" destination.

I don't understand your reference to Ernesto Munro. Can you please explain?

Ernesto is the State Secretary of Public Security

Well Kenny I am sure Russ will be able to put his spin doctoring skills to work on this for you.
It's not going to change a whole lot for you and I, and others who've been going down most of their lives, but it's going to have to be spinning mighty fast for a lot of other folks.:aagh:

Ernesto is the State Secretary of Public Security, and if I'm not mistaken they just did, or were going to bring on 250 more public safety offices, and that was supposed to alleviate some fears. Yes, this is a very bad message for both Ernesto, and PP.

Nothing to worry about as long as you aren't a Police chief, bodyguard, or drive a Jeep Cherokee.

The technical problems that continue to plague me will make an old lady out of me yet.
Ah yes, all those technological wonders that were going to make our life so much better and easier, but for the most part don't!.. My best, or favorite technological wonder right off the top of my head, is my 35 year old cast iron skillet!
