Armed civilians also destroyed a funeral home that is on the La Virgen roundabout, one block east, near the burned three-story property.

Videos released today show dozens of civilians, accompanied by police, crossing the streets, with high-caliber weapons, such as AK 47, as well as pistols.

Residents reported hearing long bursts of bullets, while mechanical shovels toppled barricades nearby.
