A 14-year-old boy nicknamed “El Chapito” has been arrested for the drug-related killing of eight people near Mexico City.
The Federal Public Safety Department said the boy, who has not been named, allegedly rode up on a motorcycle and opened fire on a family in the low-income Mexico City suburb of Chimalhuacan.
The boy’s nickname, “Little Chapo,” is an apparent reference to imprisoned drug lord Joaquin “El Chapo” Guzman.
Another man was also arrested in the January 22 killings and seven other members of the gang were arrested on drug charges.
The victims were holding a party at their house at the time of the attack, which also left five adults and two children wounded. It was reportedly a birthday party.
The motive in the killings has not been made public, but drug gangs in Mexico frequently dabble in kidnapping and contract killing.
