Juan Francisco Patron Sanchez, nicknamed “H2,” and seven of his accomplices were killed during the operation, according to local news outlet Milenio.
Mexican marines on land and in the air engaged with these criminals.

Sanchez was the leader of the Beltran Leyva drug gang and was responsible for the deaths of five Mexican military people in September.
