The shooting unleashed a great police mobilization including municipal and state police officers.

Everything happened minutes after 7 pm. Unofficially it was reported that one of the director’s escorts was killed.

José Carlos Ramos-Ramos had just become the head of the Celaya police department.

After the chief’s security personnel repelled the attack, security elements from the state, municipal police, and the Mexican army responded to the area. Investigators from the state attorney general’s office processed the crime scene the night of the November 15 attack and recovered over 480 spent .223 caliber shell casing and ten spent .50 caliber shell casings. Officials from the state attorney general’s office also reported that the cartel hitmen were also armed with a grenade launcher and grenades. Both chief’s bodyguards were wounded during the attack — one severely.

Chief Ramos-Ramos previously served as Chief of Police in the municipality of Leon, Guanajuato, but resigned in July of this year after receiving numerous death threats.
