It appears that the target of a group of armed men was a 35 year old man named Crispin Lopez who was said to be a drug pusher. He had recently been deported from the US. The other victims were Francisco and Guadalupe Chavez Miranda, aged 72 and 79. The house was reported to have operated as a "picadero" (a place where small amounts of drugs were sold and used by people in the neighborhood.

On Friday, the owner of a tire repair shop was shot to death while accompanied by his 2 daughters in the colonia Misiones del Real. A 7-yr-old girl was shot in the stomach and brought to the hospital while the other child escaped. Witnesses said the shooters appeared to be two young men, no older than 18.
