ANKARA (AA) - An armed attack at an amusement arcade in the western Uruapan city of Mexico left nine people, including children, dead on Tuesday, local media reported.
Four minors between the ages of 12 and 14 were among the dead, whereas one survived the attack with an injury, according to QS Noticias news site.
Investigators said the gun attack in Michoacan state was the result of a conflict between the two drug cartels -- Los Viagra and Jalisco New Generation, the most notorious drug gang of Mexico.
The arcade is believed to be used by Los Viagra to sell drugs, while the gunmen are said to have belonged to the rival Jalisco New Generation.
The attack occurred days after police detained a suspected local leader of Los Viagra, Luis Felipe Barragan.
In less than three days, a total of 20 people were killed in violence in Uruapan. On Sunday, 11 bodies were found in a mass grave near Zumbidito neighborhood.
