Mexican drug lord Joaquin Guzman Loera also known as “El Chapo” was possibly killed during a shootout in Guatemala City on February 22. El Chapo is one of Mexico’s most wanted drug lords.
He has been in hiding since 2001, when he broke out of jail. El Chapo is also one of the richest men, with a fortune worth about one billion dollars. It is believed that two men were killed in the alleged gunfight between two rival drug gangs. It is possible that El Chapo is one of those two men.
The armed groups, presumably fighting over territory have battled it out in the San Martin village in peten province, San Francisco municipality, near the Mexican boarder. “We cannot say it is his him but it could be.” the Guatemalan interior minister said.
The Mexican military has been sent out to search for the body in the jungle area.
