A nephew of one of the alleged leaders of drug lord Joaquin “El Chapo” Guzman’s Sinaloa Cartel was killed during a shootout in the city of Culiacan, Mexico.
Edgar Juvanny Parra Zambada, 42, nephew of Joaquin Guzmán Loera “El Chapo”, was one of two men killed in the Culiacan shootout on Friday August 26.
As a result of colateral damage, an inocent female driver was also injured in the attack, the Sinaloa state’s attorney general’s office said.
Parra Zambada is the nephew of Ismael “El Mayo” Zambada, who is accused of running Guzman’s Sinaloa Cartel while the drug kingpin is behind bars. Mexican authorities describe Ismael Zambada as “the new El Chapo.”
The U.S. Department of Justice characterized “El Mayo” as the “principal administrator, organizer or leader” of the Sinaloa Cartel when the agency announced cocaine, heroin, marijuana and methamphetamine trafficking charges against him last year.
The death of Parra Zambada follows the capture of Guzman’s son from a Puerto Vallarta restaurant earlier this month. He was later freed unharmed.
