There was a shootout between the soldiers and the letter.  8 were killed.  From what I hear it was out in a ranching community

Things have begun to heat up in Acuña. Today the GATE, policia estatal, and military were stopping all taxis, buses, and vehicles without plates or with TX plates.  They had a road block set up by the military base just behind the Macroplaza .  They had approximately 50 taxis impounded and I have no idea how many people.  

Yesterday they raided 2 casinos and closed them both down .  They also arrested 9 halcones.  I have included a link to the notification but if it doesn't work the information is on the PGJE Coahuila Facebook page.

If Acuña is anything like Piedras Negras is right now there are shootouts every day and night that nobody except the people that live here/there know about because they're not getting reported.

I hear about them every day from people at work. Luckily none have been in my colonia. Last weekend though we went to pick up my truck from the shop and a Marina helicopter was flying right over my wifes car. We could see the dudes hanging out with their weapons ready to fire. Later on on twitter and through friends and family throughout the city (PN), we heard about all kinds of chaos.

Curioso,  Sunday there was a shoot out on the toll road between the aduana at Allende and Rosita.  I think it was closer to the Allende end of it, but I can't find anything reported on itI.  It happened about 3:15 in the afternoon and it closed down the toll road for a while.  Some one said there was a story in a periodical, but I can't find it.  The official story supposedly said there 3 killed, but some people who had to turn around at the attack site said there were more bodies than that.  Did you see or hear anything about?

DD,

If you have access to twitter, you can go to your home page use the search feature and type in the word you are looking for (in this case I used Rosita) and it will pull up all the tweets that have been posted.  Some, not all, will have a link inside to the article.  You just have to open them and read them.  Lots of wonderful information out there and it is much easier to find this way vs looking on the web.

Hope this helps you

DD....yes I did hear about that. I heard it was a lot more than 3 people. But you know how that stuff goes......at 3:15 it's 3 people, by 10:00 pm it's grown depending on how many people you talk too.

curioso.  I followed the link Texpat. gave me and this is the story.

Three people killed was the outcome of a shootout between members of the Group of Special Weapons and Tactics (GATE), the Ministry of Public Security of Coahuila and armed civilians who tried to ambush them as they moved to kilometer 20, in respect from south to north, the stretch of the town of Nueva Rosita Allende, on the highway Premier. The Ministry of Public Security reported that the police officers were traveling down the highway with direction to the municipality of Acuña, Coahuila, when criminals threw stars "ponchallantas" forcing them to stop the march, and immediately start the confrontation. According to the report, the elements of the state elite group repelled the attack, killing three armed civilians, while others managed to flee in vehicles, while minutes later came to support elements of the Secretary of Defense that at the base of 53.3 km of Highway 57, in the municipality of Allende, Coahuila. No element of the Group of Special Weapons and Tactics was injured, while the low was only criminal group, officials said.
