There was a cartel shooting in Culiacan, Sinaloa. Mexico says that 8 died in the shooting.  Mexican officials say eight people were killed in gunbattles in Sinaloa state capital of Culiacan in what is being described as a failed operation to detain the son of convicted Sinaloa cartel boss Joaquin “El Chapo” Guzman. Federal security officials said in a news conference Friday that those who killed include civilians, one member of the National Guard, one prisoner and five attackers. Officials said late Thursday that troops had come under fire from a house while on patrol and found Ovidio Guzman Lopez inside. But on Friday they said that it was an operation specifically intended to arrest him on a warrant issued by a judge for extradition to the united states. Mexican authorities say that they backed off an attempt to capture a son of drug trafficker Joaquin Guzman after cartel gunmen shooting heavy weapons and burning vehicles that paralyzed the capital of Mexico Sinaloa state. State security officials say that 1 people were wounded and 27 inmates escaped a prison. Mexican security secretary Alfonso Durazo says 30 members of the National Guard and army were patrolling in Culiacan what they were fried on from a house Thursday. The house was then surrounded by heavily armed gunmen who had “a greater froce ” and authorities decided to suspend the operation. One of the guys, which was named Durazo did not say if Ovidio Guzman had been arrested or went free, but he told Televisa late at night that security forces entered the house but left without him.
