An attack on a police convoy in the western Mexico state of Jalisco killed 15 state police officers and wounded five, marking the deadliest single attack on police in Mexico in recent memory.Prosecutors would not confirm the gang was involved in the attack, but it was hard to imagine any rival gang launching such a large attack on Jalisco's home turf.On March 19, gunmen in Jalisco ambushed a federal police convoy, killing five officers.Solorio said the most recent attacks are in retaliation for the March 23 shootout in which police killed gang boss Heriberto Acevedo Cardenas, who is nicknamed "El Gringo".Jalisco state prosecutor Luis Carlos Najera had previously identified Acevedo Cardenas as the mastermind behind a May 2014 ambush of Mexican army troops in another part of Jalisco state that killed four soldiers and injured two.
