Vigilante leader Luis Antonio Torres, alias "El Americano", (C) is cheered by supporters as he and other vigilantes voluntarily surrender to state authorities to cooperate in a shootout investigation in the town of Buenavista Tomatlan, Michoacan December 30, 2014. Authorities said a shootout on December 16 between rival vigilantes in Mexico's western Michoacan state left 11 dead, in the clearest sign yet of renewed unrest in an area President Enrique Pena Nieto's government said had been pacified. According to local media, the groups fought at a checkpoint barricade at the entrance to La Ruana. One of the groups, led by a man known by the alias "El Americano", was upset by the way another vigilante leader, Hipolito Mora, had taken control of the area.
