Although details on the killing of a power drug capo’s nephew are still scarce, there is reason to believe the murder foreshadows a conflict for Mexico’s mighty Sinaloa Cartel.
In the city of Culiacan, within the Sinaloa Cartel’s stronghold of Sinaloa state, a truck full of unidentified assailants reportedly opened fire on another truck full of men.
As a result, Jose Vicente Zambada Reyes and two other men were killed, while another was injured, reported Proceso.

The Sinaloa Cartel is arguably Mexico’s most powerful drug trafficking organization, whose infamous leader Joaquin “El Chapo” Guzman escaped from prison earlier this year.
