The legend of El Chapo lives on in his notorious son. 

Ovidio Guzmán-López, the son of legendary cartel kingpin Joaquin “El Chapo” Guzman, was transferred to a maximum security Mexican prison on Thursday – just hours after his arrest triggered an all-out war of gang violence and attacks against the military that killed seven people.

After being captured Excelsior reported that Guzmán-López was flown by helicopter to Federal Social Readaptation Center No. 1, or “Altiplano,” a maximum security facility near Toluca.

Nicknamed “El Ratón,” or “The Mouse,” Guzmán-López, 32, is believed to be a high-ranking faction leader within his father’s notorious Sinaloa cartel. The U.S. State Department previously promised a $5M reward for information on his whereabouts. 

News of his arrest sparked a wave of violent protests as furious gang members in Culiacán, Los Mochis, and Guasave established roadblocks, set vehicles alight, and opened fire on local airports.

Local civilians have been encouraged to shelter in place until the authorities and government can get the violence under control.
