VERACRUZ — Police in Mexico’s Gulf coast state of Veracruz say 14 criminal suspects have been killed in a gunbattle with a patrol of Mexican marines.
A statement from the state police Coordination Group says the shootout began when gunmen attacked a police patrol car in the township of Jesus Carranza in a remote part of the state, the AP reported.
The statement Monday Dec. 5 says marines arrived as backup and also came under fire. It says 14 attackers were killed and an unknown number fled.
The marines reportedly found a .50-caliber sniper rifle and 13 assault rifles at the scene.
A shootout in the same area on Saturday between suspected criminals and Mexican soldiers resulted in the death of three suspects.
