A Few minutes after Midnight this morning, another slaughter occurred at an Acapulco Nightclub.  An armed group of criminals attacked a nightclub in Acapulco Guerrero.

The masked armed group entered the bar Las Nenas, which is located at Boulevard Lazaro Cardenas in the colony above Las Cruces. There has been violence at this club before.

The gunmen opened fire with AK-47’s and AR-15’s. Panic immediately broke out as bodies began to hit the floor. Over 100 shell casings were found by police after the attack.

Early reports are that 10 people were killed, and four women were taken to the hospital. The Guerrero State Authorities have not issued an official statement yet.

Authorities have blamed rising violence in Acapulco on fighting between remnants of the Beltran Leyva drug cartel, most of whose leaders have been captured or killed.
