Apparent sounds of gunfire heard in the formerly sleepy town of Zacatecas, Mexico.

I heard five rounds starting at 8:31 PM, followed by a pause. Then seven more rounds, ending at 8:37 PM.

A total of twelve rounds in seven minutes.

Given the average of 30+ second pauses between shots, this may have been aimed rifle fire.

The sound of gunfire differs from fireworks, or an exhaust backfire from cars or motorcycles in that gunfire has an accompanying ‘crackle’ created as the bullets go supersonic.

It’s now been 20 minutes since the first shot was heard.

No sirens, yet.  I hope no one was hurt.

Updates (times by my system clock):

9:04 Two rounds fired – approximately four seconds apart.

9:07 One round.

9:08 One round.

9:09 One round. (Dogs barking now)

9:10 One round.

9:11 One round.

9:12 Two rounds.


9:14 Two rounds.

9:16 Two rounds.


9:18 One round.

9:19 One round.

9:20 One round.

[Still no sirens]

9:24 One round.

[It could be an urban rifle range with one customer]

9:27 One round.

[Long Pause]

Still no sounds of sirens.
