Fifteen people were left dead in a nightclub shooting in Mexico.

Local media reported that a group of armed men pulled up in three vans before sunrise at the La Playa men’s club in the city of Salamanca.

It was not immediately clear who committed the crime.

Authorities say powerful oil theft gangs have stolen vast quantities of fuel from Salamanca’s oil refinery.

This week, Mexico’s president launched a major offensive to capture local gang leader Jose Antonio Yepez, known as “El Marro.”

Authorities said 13 men were found dead in the nightclub, and another two died after being taken to a hospital.

The crime is still being investigated.
