Eight people were killed at a family birthday party, and police have arrested a 14-year-old student known as “El Chapito.”


Eight people, including seven children, were killed and seven others were injured at a birthday party, and a 14-year-old boy has been arrested in connection with the massacre.

On January 22 in Mexico City, the young man, known only as “El Chapito,” allegedly rode up to a family celebration on a motorcycle and opened fire on the guests.

Unnamed boy and an alleged accomplice known as “El oo” were arrested together in Mexico on Thursday, according to official reports.

Partygoers in Mexico City’s poor Chimalhuacan neighborhood were targeted during the killing spree.

Eight people, including a 3-year-old child, were killed, and five adults and two kids were injured in the attack.

Last weekend, federal police conducted a swift 12-hour sting operation in the outskirts of Mexico City, during which they arrested seven members of the same gang on drug-related charges.

The drug cartels in Mexico are notorious for carrying out contract killings or meting out ruthless retribution on rivals and enemies, which may be the motivation for the murders at the birthday party.

Mexico, still reeling from the news of the crimes of “El Ponchis,” is no stranger to child murderers.

Edgar, a 14-year-old who only gave his first name, confessed to being involved in four beheadings in 2010.

But the boy claimed he was kidnapped when he was 11 and forced to commit the heinous crimes for the South Pacific Cartel.

“El Chapito” is currently being housed in a juvenile correctional facility.

Joaquin “El Chapo” Guzman, the former leader of the vicious Sinaloa cartel in Mexico, is the inspiration for the boy’s moniker.

During 2017, Guzman was apprehended and extradited to the United States. A 2019 court found him guilty on multiple counts, including narcotics trafficking, money laundering, and weapons violations. He was convicted and sentenced to life in prison in Colorado.

Ovidio Guzman, the drug lord’s son, was apprehended in a dramatic operation led by Mexican authorities in January.

His detention led to a wave of violence that spread throughout Sinaloa state. When drug cartel members went on the rampage, the army had to be called out to restore order.

The military and cartel gunmen engaged in violent clashes, resulting in at least 30 deaths.

The arrest of “El Chapito” has been reported as tourists are being warned away from Mexico due to a recent upsurge in gang violence.

There has been an increase in kidnappings and homicides in Mexico at the same time that many college students are flocking there for spring break, causing many to cancel their plans.
