At least three people were seen lying dead on the ground in videos that were shared on social media and showed heavy gunfire at a rally that took place in an area of Ensenada.

According to the state prosecutor Ricardo Iván Carpio, the investigation revealed that the vehicle in question had “perforations from gunshots and traces of blood inside.”
According to the office of the state prosecutor, there was evidence of crossfire that suggested the incident was a confrontation between members of different organized crime groups.
