The Prosecutor’s Office has revealed that the tragic incident at the local Beer House Cantina in San Luis Río Colorado resulted in the death of 11 people due to a devastating fire. Preliminary investigations indicate that the fire was deliberately started with a Molotov cocktail. The bar’s location, right in front of the border wall between San Luis Río Colorado and Arizona, United States, adds to the gravity of the situation.

It’s believed that there is at least one US citizen among the victims. The Sonora Attorney General’s Office reported that a woman was transported to receive medical attention in San Luis, Arizona, according to EFE.

According to multiple witnesses, a young man reportedly insulted several women inside the bar, resulting in his removal. However, he later returned and allegedly threw what appeared to be a makeshift Molotov cocktail at the bar’s entrance, leading to the tragic incident.

«We have gathered information on the suspect, but we are not disclosing it at this time as we are actively pursuing his capture. We have identified him through photographs and have partial information about his affiliation, but this is all part of an ongoing investigation,» stated Gustavo Rómulo Salas Chávez, the head of the FGJE, during a press conference, according to EFE.
