México, DF.- The mayor of the Francisco R. Murguía county, better known as ''Nieves'', Alfredo Ortiz del Rio, confirmed that a gun battle took place between a group of Zeta gunmen and a young man resident of the town.
The mayor in an interview with Denise Maerker, of Radio Formula, said that only one person confronted the gunmen during a gunfight that lasted around 40 minutes.
According to the mayor, a group of gunmen had ordered a town representative to ask the people to hand over their guns.
After three days the gunmen returned, but this time they were looking for a person, but one of his sons confronted them.
The father of the young man was out of town, but his son fought with one of the gunmen and killed him; he then took the gunman's rifle and confronted the entire convoy of 3 trucks and managed too kill another Zeta.
The young man survived with no injuries after being attacked with guns and hand grenades.
The mayor said the police and army are now doing patrols in this rural community.
