The six state police officers who were ambushed and murdered in the community of Las Mesillas, in the municipality of José Azueta (Zihuatanejo), received the coup de grace and were robbed of their weapons, state authorities reported.
According to the report, the ambush suffered by the officers who were on patrol occurred almost parallel to the events that were registered in the community of Coacoyul, where another group of state police officers were attacked by some 15 armed criminals.
In Coacoyul, after two clashes between federal forces and assassins, there was a total of ten dead and a wounded ministerial police.
According to the report, the criminals carried assault rifles of AK-47 and AR-15.
In the Las Mesillas ambush where six agents were killed, the police officers were returning from a community in the Municipality of Petatlán, where they had taken into custody a group of people for precautionary measures.

In  this ambush, where the six agents died, the state government gave no facts, just reiterated its commitment to continue “protecting society and not leaving it at the mercy of criminals.”
The violence which has been unleashed in the last 24 hours in Guerrero has left 23 dead; sixteen in the Municipality of José Azueta; two in Atoyac de Álvarez; four in Acapulco and one (this Wednesday) in the community of Xochipala, of the Municipality of Zumpango de Neri.
