The shootout and the video come one day after Mexican authorities killed 10 cartel gunmen in an hour-long gun battle. The Mexican state of Guerrero has become one of the most violent where various drug cartels fight for control of lucrative drug production and trafficking territories. The bloodshed between rival factions turned the once bustling beach resort town of Acapulco into one of the most dangerous cities in the country where, as Breitbart Texas reported, the morgues have become overwhelmed.
