The violent cartel boss Juan Francisco “H2” Patron and seven of his enforces and lieutenants were killed Thursday night when a Mexican federal police helicopter overflew the bandit’s hideout and opened fire. Despite the attack taking place in an urban setting, no bystanders were injured in the aerial assault according to the Mexican navy. H2’s death marks a serious victory for the Mexican federal police seeing as H2 was the acting head largest wing of the Beltrán-Leyva Cartel following the arrest of Héctor Beltran Leyva in 2014.
The Beltrán-Leyva Cartel has split into many different factions since the dissolution of the leadership. The branch of the cartel H2 controlled smuggled drugs over the water to Cancun from the Mexican states Nayarit and Jalisco. From Cancun the narcotics were being smuggled over the border into Nevada and California. Tepic, the capital of Nayarit, was the city where this video was captured. A Mexican state run media outlet has reported that H2 was wanted in connection to the deaths of five Mexican military personal who were killed in September.
The Mexican Navy reported finding grenade launchers and automatic rifles in the hands of Capo’s dead enforcers. Four more members of the Beltran Leyva cartel were also killed later that day in a shootout with Mexican authorities later that day at the Tepic airport while trying to flee capture according to the Mexican Navy.
