fter the arrest of Dámaso López, El Licenciado , in 2017 and the subsequent delivery of his son to the DEA, a few months later, the organization of Los Dámasos, which was one of the fractions of the Cartel of Sinaloa , were left unresolved in the removal Jesus Alfredo and Iván, the children of Joaquín El Chapo Guzmán with whom they had entered into conflict over the leadership of the criminal organization.
In the war against Los Chapitos, Los Dámasos hired an armed wing of the same criminal organization, called Los 28,  however, the hitmen could not accomplish the task, and with the arrest of their bosses and the struggles inside the cartel, the cell disintegrated.

Now that El Chapo was sentenced to life imprisonment in the United States, and in the middle of the rearrangement of cartels, Nemesio Oseguera, El Mencho, head of the Jalisco New Generation Cartel (CJNG), would have reintegrated and hired Los 28 to perform the same task of eliminating the “Chapitos”.
Los 28 were operating independently in Baja California Sur, from where they were contracted as hitmen from the Tijuana Cartel or from one of the ten groups operating inside the Sinaloa Cartel.
Now they were hired by the CJNG to search, capture and execute the children of Guzmán Loera.
On one occasion, both CJNG and Los Dámasos had had the opportunity to execute Los Chapitos, when they kidnapped them on August 16, 2016 at the La Leche restaurant in Puerto Vallarta, however, they were released after Ismael’s intervention El Mayo Zambada and Rafael Caro Quintero. 

In the video of the security cameras of the restaurant it is observed how hit men overwhelmed Ivan and Jesus Alfredo, beat them with weapons and then force them out of the restaurant.
El Mencho had warned the children of Guzmán Loera not to approach the plaza, but ignoring the warning they decided to celebrate in Puerto Vallarta the birthday of one of them in the company of friends and a group of sicarios.
The group of hired thugs was integrated in 2014 under the command of the brothers Felipe Eduardo, Jorge Alberto and Carlos Guajardo. [above image]


Under their orders, one of the most dangerous women in drug trafficking in Mexico, Melissa Margarita Calderón Ojeda, La China, arrested in 2015 and who played a fundamental role for the association with Los Dámaso, for whom she also worked. 

China distinguished herself by being a sicaria whose fellow members feared for her bloodthirsty methods.
Even her boyfriend was afraid of her and ended up handing her over to the authorities to prevent her from continuing to commit heinous acts.
Although she initially disputed opposed the presence of Los Dámaso in Baja California, she finally chose to take care of the interests of the organization, mainly in the tourist areas of La Paz, Guerrero Negro, Mulegé, Comondú and Los Cabos, where they were engaged in drug trafficking.
In 2016, when the war between Los Dámasos and the children of Guzmán Loera began, a group of the fifty best hit men of Los 28 were recruited to go to the Los Chapitos hunt.

The hit men had learned military tactics with Nahúm Quintero Manjarrez, El Grande, boyfriend of La China , before he was arrested.

The previous investigation PGR / SEIDO / UEIDCS / 059/2015 indicates that El Grande trained those recruited by Los 28 in the handling of weapons.

Antonio Morales Uriarte, El Lucifer, who was arrested by federal forces on March 6, 2017, was appointed at the head of the group, however, from the maximum security prison in La Palma he would have negotiated with El Mencho to cede control over the “squadron” of death” to be deployed in different cities of Sinaloa in search of Los Chapitos, who continue to dominate the Plaza de Culiacán, in Sinaloa. 

In addition to fighting the pursuit by Los 28 and El Mencho, the children of Guzmán Loera also have to fight a battle against the Sinaloa Cartel cells that disagree that they become the new bosses of the criminal organization, since the current ringleader, El Mayo Zambada, is 70 years old.
