- The social networks of Tamaulipas that touch on insecurity issues presented a video in which it is observed the moment in which hitmen take away an alleged comrade in arms, who was killed or injured, after a confrontation that they had with another rival group the outskirts of the city of Reynosa.
The armed clash occurred this Wednesday at 7:45 a.m., when residents of the El Campanario neighborhood reported that to the south of the city there were a series of detonations and chases between vehicles.
The alert activated the federal, military and state corporations, so they moved to the Reynosa-Río Bravo highway, where they were assured that at the entrance to a maquiladora known as “El Puente” there was a broken car and that also on the outskirts of this there was a person, apparently lifeless.
The officers arrived at the subdivision, but they did not find the supposed dead person, only a blue Ford Fiesta car with smashed doors.
As they went through the area, they discovered that there was a lifeless stranger attached to the fence of the maquiladora, so they believed that it was that person.
It was until moments later, when the Twitter account known as "El Guzman" revealed photographs of the moment when other gunmen aboard a white truck loaded the body of an alleged colleague who was near the car in question.
The same account indicates that the hitmen most likely did not notice the other gunman and, believing that there was only one person, they proceeded to withdraw.
Sedena personnel took on the task of cordoning off the area while officials from the state Attorney General's Office vouched for the other body.
Reynosa continues to experience a series of confrontations in which cells belonging to the Gulf Cartel try to impose their force on the others and be able to control all illegal acts in the region.
