Federal choppers, local cops, Federales... an alert went out on Mexican social media a half hour ago. Supposedly expecting a big shootout.

Reports coming in now say too many police vehicles to count, also military, armoured  vehicles, all up behind the Perico hotel on the libra.

I believe he was the ex-Attorney General  they tried to assassinate.  They lit a bus on fire and a woman and her baby were burnt.  The baby died and she was in the hosptial with 95% burns, taken to the burn center in Tx then returned here and subsequently died recently.

No sign of any accident or bus on fire.

The posts here suggesting possibly relevant 'background' involving a former Jalisco Attorney General may be referring to this event in May, 2018: 

"12 gunmen attack Jalisco labor secretary in Guadalajara - Several people wounded, six suspects arrested after attack in city center" - Tuesday, May 22, 2018

20+ State Police Trucks flew by my office, 5+ Chapala police trucks, 10 Army vehicles passed me other direction Chapala Haciendas, police checkpoint with trucks blocking carretera and guns drawn checking vehicles by Los Burritos near start of Ixtlahuacan.  Looks like a hit on state prosecutor personnel but judging by the response there were probably a few local locos Narcos / Terrorists involved.

I got out of that traffic as fast as I could. Just now, it seems to be over, as seven mixed cop trucks pulled into the gas station area in Riberas to let their buds catch up, on the way to Chapala. One obligingly backed up so I could get through. And traffic heading west seems to have dissipated as far as I can see.

It was not days ago, it was months ago prior to the Mexican elections.

 

And in the May 2018 incident, it was not the Attorney General, it was the Jalisco Labor Secretary.  Geez, you guys.
