The pictures published El Blog del Narco show those at the restaurant putting their hands up and surrendering.

The site says the photos, which local media reported were confirmed by officials, were taken from surveillance cameras in the restaurant and show the victims surrending with their hands over their heads.

Mexican journalist Denise Maerker also shared a picture of Alfredo Guzman with Kate del Castillo, the superstar actress who negotiated Sean Penn’s meeting with El Chapo and now faces obstruction of justice charges from the Mexican government.

The circumstances behind the photo are not known, though it is believed to come from one of the phones discovered near La Leche after the kidnapping.

Jalisco state Attorney General Eduardo Almaguer said that Alfredo, who is wanted in the U.S. for helping his father traffic drugs, was one of six men with ties to the Sinaloa cartel taken by the attackers.

Women at the celebration around 1 a.m. were released, and one man at the restaurant was reportedly able to escape.

Only four of the six men taken have been identified by prosecutors, who earlier speculated that El Chapo’s other son Ivan was among those taken.

Prosecutors did not mention Ivan, who is thought to have taken over parts of the cartel after his father was re-arrested earlier this year, in a Tuesday press conference.

Joaquin Guzman is currently being held in Ciudad Juarez, across the U.S.-Mexico border from El Paso.

The attention-grabbing attack on the Sinaloa cartel comes as Jalisco New Generation continues to challenge it for influence in Mexico.

In June local media reported that a gang of men stole cars and other goods from the home of the elder Guzman’s mother.
