Violence Rising in Jalisco

A Mexican army helicopter has been shot at in Jalisco, killing three soldiers and injuring 12. The Jalisco New Generation gang was believed responsible. There were violent clashes elsewhere in the state. Jalisco's Governor said at least seven people had been killed and 15 injured Friday. Vehicles were set on fire and banks and gas stations were damaged across the region.
The cartel has been blamed for an attack May 22 on the former attorney general of Jalisco that was followed by gunfire and narco-blockades on the streets of Guadalajara. More than 20 police officers have been killed in attacks by drug gangs in the last two months in Jalisco state.
