Mexican President Andrés Manuel López Obrador said in a statement about the recent rise in crime that members of cartels and gangs “attacked innocent civilians as if it were a kind of revenge.” It wasn’t just a clash between them, it got to the point where they started shooting civilians, innocent people. That’s the most unfortunate thing about this incident.”
