GRAPHIC — WATCH: Local Police Chief Executed in Mexican Border State

A team of gunmen entered a restaurant to execute a local police chief in the Mexican State of Chihuahua. The attack appears to be an escalation of the violence between the Juarez and the Sinaloa Cartels for regional control.

A video from surveillance cameras leaking to social media in Chihuahua reveals the execution of Edgar Perez de Peña, the police chief in Cuauhtemoc as he was eating at a local restaurant.

The video reveals the moment when two gunmen enter the Mariscada restaurant and sit at a table behind the police chief in uniform. In less than a minute, the gunmen to attack Perez without hurting his wife at the table. The gunmen then escape.

As Breitbart Texas has been reporting, the violence between the two cartels spread to include attacks on local and state police officers. In the border city of Ciudad Juarez alone, 11 police officers were murdered in connection with the ongoing violence.
