FEMSA guards found dead after Mexico shooting
MONTERREY, Mexico — The bodies of two security guards for Mexican bottling company FEMSA have been found dead a day after a shootout in northern Mexico.
FEMSA says in a statement that four other guards who disappeared after Friday’s shooting were located unharmed.
Police says the two slain guards were found Saturday in the trunk of a car. Three other guards were wounded Friday.
The company says the guards were on standard patrols when gunmen attacked a FEMSA plant in Santa Catarina, a suburb of Monterrey. Police have not determined a motive, but the region is one of Mexico’s most violent cartel battlegrounds.
