The Mexican government managed to kill a major drug kingpin in February.
According to American GG, Juan Francisco Patrón Sánchez, also known as “H2,” was fatally shot by the Mexican Army and Navy.
Sanchez, who is a major member of the Mexican drug cartel, and at least 11 accomplices were killed during the raid.
Conservative Tribune reports:
A source told the news agency that it all started when Sanchez and others barricaded themselves in a house and opened fire on Marines.
Due to the heavy amount of gunfire and the dangerous nature of the criminals, the Mexican military called in a reinforcement: a helicopter mini gun.
Although the use of the weapon is rare, the Navy said it was necessary in this situation in order to lower “the level of aggression and [reduce] the risk of civilian or federal casualties.”
Sanchez and his accomplices weren’t expecting gunfire to rain down on them as their weapons were no match for the helicopter machine gun. Thankfully, no civilians were injured in the gunfire.
Mexico is finally doing something to combat the rampant drug cartels that have taken over their country. For years, the United States has had to shoulder the burden of these dangerous drug cartels and many innocent Americans have been caught in the crossfire as a result.
