The cannon is a reminder of the days of the Decena Trágica (Tragical Ten), which was a period a little bit longer than 10 days in which a group rebelled against the government of Francisco I. Madero. This chapter would end when president Madero and vice-president Pino Suárez are killed, as well as the rise to the presidency of Victoriano Huerta.
On Friday, 18 September 2009 a shooting occurred on the platform. A man was painting the walls on the station and was then confronted by an officer. He reacted by taking out a gun and killing him and a construction worker, leaving also five wounded.
