An armed group killed 10 people in a pool hall in Guanajuato, a booming industrial state in central Mexico that is also the country’s most violent, authorities said Thursday.

The massacre took place on Wednesday night in the municipality of Tarimororo, the regional prosecutor’s office said in a statement.

“The bodies of nine men were recovered,” and “another man died in hospital,” the organization’s press release said.

Local media released a video purportedly taken by the militants, in which gunshots can be heard and cardboard thrown near one of the victims.

According to those reports, the signs read the squadron’s slogans, which attributed the carnage and alluded to an alleged rival gang.

Several shell casings from short and long weapons were also found at the scene.

Guanajuato Governor Diego Xinhue Rodríguez condemned the act, calling it a “cowardly attack.” “We are in full coordination with federal and municipal authorities, we all have a firm commitment to restore peace,” he wrote on Twitter.

The booming industrial state of Guanajuato has become Mexico’s most violent state due to a dispute between the Santa Rosa de Lima and Jalisco Nueva Generación cartels, which are involved in drug trafficking and fuel theft, among other crimes.

According to government data, 2,115 murders were committed in the region between January and August, which together with five other states accounted for 48.7% of the country’s murders during that period (a total of 20,722).

However, the number of cases accumulated through August represents a decrease of 8.4% compared to the same period in 2021.

More than 340,000 murders and nearly 100,000 disappearances, most attributed to criminal organizations, have been reported in Mexico since the start of a controversial military offensive against drugs in December 2006.
