"El Chapito" is a known drug trafficker and coodinated a group of narcomenudistas. El Chapito is thought to be responsible for several killings, among others, the one that occured on March 9 in a popular bar on the Sixth Street in this city, where Ismael Valle 25 was executed.
Early research suggests that "el Chapito" worked under the command of a subject nicknamed "Julian" who was responsible for ordering the attack on the bar on the 9 March "La Ruta de la six" located on Sixth Street, in downtown Tijuana.
Ismael Tapia Vallewas a young man who recently graduated from college. His family owned bar on Sixth Street in Tijuana. He was in the band "Instinto Animal" which regularly performed at the bar. Since January, Tapia Valle spent much time with his family, opening the bar on making it a presentable venue for local band to perform..
