ACAPULCO, Mexico Gunmen killed six people, including a local police chief, in a series of attacks Monday in mountain towns in the Pacific coast state of Guerrero.
The police chief of Pungarabato was repeatedly shot while driving his red Mustang on a highway near the small town early Monday, Guerrero state public safety department said in a news release.
Five other men were found gunned down in different towns in the isolated mountainous zone known as the Tierra Caliente, or the Hot Land, the state police said.
In the border city of Tijuana, soldiers detained 60 people at a party, including a suspected drug hit man accused of cutting up bodies.
Angel Jacome Gamboa is accused of working for Eduardo Teodoro Garcia Simental, a former member of the Arellano Felix who is now fighting for control of Tijuana. Jacome was found with a gold-plated 9mm gun with the image of Mexicos Death Saint, a skeleton worshipped by some traffickers, according to military commander, Alfonso Duarte Mujica.
Garcia Simental, known as El Teo short for Teodoro has appeared frequently in news reports over the last year amid a bloodbath of mutilated bodies, beheadings and dumped corpses.
Also detained were two state police agents, and a former Rosarito city officer, Mujica said.

Seems alot of cabezas have gone missing lately.
ugh if you want a weak currency and inexpensive ladies I’d hit up Southeast Asia rather than Tijuana this time around. This kind of thing is going to kill Mexican tourism.
Mexico needs a mass Exorcism.
I thought Mexico was against the death penalty.
