Knights Templar cartel gunmen shot down a police helicopter in the Mexican State of Michoacán. Multiple ground-to-air weapons seized.
The helicopter crash took place Tuesday in the rural farming community known as La Huacana, information provided to Breitbart Texas revealed.
Authorities had initially responded to the area in response to the attempted kidnapping of a local farmer. During the response to the failed kidnapping, authorities spotted the heads of “criminal gangs” resulting in the deployment of more forces in an attempt to capture them, Michoacán Governor Silvano Aureoles said during a streamed news conference.
