Saturday night’s shooting is the second in Guanajuato state in recent weeks.

Ten people were killed in a swimming pool in Tarimoro Municipality in September.

According to the Daily Mirror, gunmen responsible for the September attack captured video of the dead and streamed it on social media.

Reuters reported that a motive for Saturday’s shooting was not given.

The state has been a battlefield for wars between drug gangs.

The country is a key area for automakers, which have multiple plants in the region.

According to the Border Report, some gangs are struggling to control the lucrative fentanyl trade.

“A lot of it is made in states controlled by these cartels […] and states like Colima, where the precursor chemicals are coming in from China,” said Michael Ballard, Global Guardian intelligence director.

The Sinaloa Cartel and the Jalisco New Generation Cartel are each trying to dominate the other, he said.

“That’s why you’re seeing a lot of violence in the western half of Mexico lately because these two cartels are accommodating in this trade and are fighting each other. And then you have factions fighting each other. Sinaloa has rival factions and they (also) fight with the police,” Ballard said.
