“Sol Prendido” for Borderland Beat
A cockfight that was taking place in the palenque known as La Roca, located in the municipal capital of Epazoyucan, almost ended in tragedy after an unknown subject threw two fragmentation grenades, one of which exploded and the other failed to detonate.
According to the local police, a man entered the building and threw the explosive devices at the attendees who were at the event and ran away.
Miraculously, the explosion did not reach anyone, only the nervous crisis that it generated among the cockfighters who ran away.
The municipal police and civil protection arrived at the scene and provided help to the people who were there bewildered and frightened.
The assailant fled in a black Jeep Grand Cherokee, towards an unknown destination.
Mexican Army personnel, the National Guard and state police arrived at the palenque located in front of the Tuzofari facilities, owned by a well-known businessman of the municipality, where they found and secured the grenade that did not explode.
Ministerial agents and experts from the PGJEH, were in charge of the expert reports and lines of investigation to determine if it was an attack by organized crime or an isolated event that could have ended in a tragedy.
