By Zoila Palma Gonzalez: Authorities in Mexico say that on Wednesday, gunmen stormed the San Miguel Totolapan Town Hall in Guerrero and murdered the Mayor and 19 other people, BBC reports.
Mexican state officials have condemned the killing and are demanding justice.
Mayor Condrado Mendoza Almeda’s colleagues have also condemned his assassination. Almeda’s father, the former mayor, Juan Mendoza was also murdered in his home before the attack at the Town Hall.
Officials say that the attack has been blamed on the Los Tequileros criminal gang, which is linked to a powerful drug cartel.
Among the victims are police officers and council workers, officials say.
The town is located in a region known as Tierra Caliente, a violent part of drug cartel-controlled western Mexico.
