Francisco Torres - 'El Duranguillo'

The U.S. is warning citizens to stay away from several areas of Mexico near the U.S. border. The Department of State upgraded the travel advisory for Baja California to level 3, which urges U.S. citizens to reconsider their travel plans due to the possibility of kidnapping or other violent crimes. Folks best avoid the cities of Tijuana and Rosarito in Baja California.

The arrest of 'El Duranguillo' led to a tense standoff between Torres' men and soldiers. An hour long gunfight broke out between the two factions.
The U.S. Consulate in Tijuana says “criminal organization assassinations and territorial disputes can result in bystanders being injured or killed.”
