Three Dead in Halloween Mexicali Bar Nightmare on Wrongplacewrongtime Street

Shootings at the Mexicali Bar, “Cotorro”, 3 Dead What appears to be a vendetta by the dispute over the control of the retail sale of drugs, was raised a shootout in the Bar “El Cotorro” (the Parrot) in the hotel zone of Mexicali.

Three people were killed in the shootout which took place during a Halloween party at the bar.

In this bar there was a Halloween wedding party taking place.  Most of the people were in costumes–a perfect setting for a shooting.
Once the shooting started the place became truly a night of terror, and while some were thrown to the ground, others ran stampede, along with a smiling gunman left the bathroom and kept the gun in his waistband and then left the bar and ran.

The bodies of two people were lying on the floor of the bathroom.

Major arrests

A couple days ago, we were at home, getting our place all ready for the festivities coming up, when we heard loud sirens, from ambulances, police cars, and even helicopters buzzing above us.  Since we live right on the border, we assumed we were hearing U.S.
Border Patrol helicopters, which patrolling all the time.  Instead, the helicopters turned out to be Mexican military helicopters.

Every Mexicali resident is always plugged in to what’s happening here.  We soon discovered from some of our friends that former policeman was accused of heading the Sinaloa cartel’s operations in Mexicali.

He was arrested along with nine other suspected cartel members, in Mexicali by the Mexican military.  This is big deal, as the Mexican military was involved.

The military operation took place in five separate locations and led to the seizure of more than 223 kilos of cocaine and 116 kilos of marijuana, along with $13,100 in U.S.  currency and 10,000 Mexican pesos.

Also seized were nine vehicles, along with ammunition and numerous weapons, including 29 rifles, five grenade launchers, 34 40-mm grenades, seven defensive grenades, and 21,404 rounds of ammunition, according to the military.

On a brighter note, we found this great taco place, the best in Mexicali.  It’s called Tecolote which means owl in Spanish.  We’ll be heading out for supper soon.

For us, it’s just another day in Mexicali.
