Shootout in Matamoros, CDG vs Marines, 5 Arrested

November 29, shootout breaks out in Matamoros. The shootout took place in Avenida Sendero, in front of a Soriana store, sources state the shootout was between the CDG and the Marines. Reports started to flow slowly yesterday afternoon, but I was holding back on the story because the information was too inaccurate. Initial reports stated, 6 reported deaths and several Federal Agents killed.





People in the area also reported hearing explosions going off, possibly grenades. The criminal group were burning grasslands in the area as a strategy to prevent the visibility of the helicopters. Reports started pouring from all over the place, but nothing of which I felt reliable enough to base the coverage on.




Official statements released by the SSP...

SSP PRESS reported, five suspected criminals in possession of high-powered weapons, handguns and grenades where detained in a shootout that broke out infront of Soriana Superstore. These people moved on Federal Highway from Matamoros to Reynosa, Tamaulipas when taking notice of several elements of the Federal Police, launched an attack with firearms.



Agents responded to the fire and following a chase, the agents were able to intercept in the streets Constituyentes, between Septima y Segunda in Matamoros in a black pick up, plates 15TH538TX.













People in custody.

Héctor Manuel Arratia López, 25 y/o

Marco Antonio Moedano de la Cruz, 27 y/o

Miguel Covarrubias Cruz, 24 y/o

Diego Armando Alejandro, 18 y/o

Carlos Nava Treviño, 40 y/o


This seizure was a result of security and surveillance work carried out elements of the Federal Police in the country's road network through which they could observe the presence of armed persons on board of that unit.

After reviewing the Pick-Up Chevrolet Avalanche, the following where found

Two fragmentation grenades
An AK-47 rifle
Two 50-caliber rifle type weapons mm
An AR-15 rifle
A super 38 caliber handgun
A 38-caliber handgun
28 9mm rounds of ammunition
14 chargers of various sizes
249 rounds of ammunition of different calibres


It is noteworthy to report that in this action four members of the Federal Police where injured and remain under medical care.

The detainees will be made available to the Agent of the Federal Public Ministry for the investigations.

With these actions the federal Public Security Secretariat reaffirms it commitment to protect and serve the community.




The report mentions nothing about any casualties or other suspects getting away, and as we all know, there is no reason to doubt the government as they are always honest in this operations, and all this random encounters are actually well planned out operations based on intelligence gathering on criminal groups under surveillance.


Here are some videos, in one of them the people recording are talking about a visible body on the street just after the events.






















Reports of an injured man where also released, Americo Hernandez Ruiz, 61 years old, was admitted into the social security hospital in Matamoros with a bullet grace to his head. The man was injured while driving his neon, he got stuck in the middle of the fight and was graced by a bullet, thanksfully the wound was not severe.
So far that is all the information on the shootout, personal friends of mine reported several agents killed, 3 AFI and even more suspects. I doubt any of this information will be released, if the SSP already aired their statement, I doubt they will be going back on it.

Special thanks to Ovemex and Gerardo for helping me gather information.

  2. en casos de reynosa yo e tenido videos y fotos de incidentes relacionado al crimen organizado. Yo antes lo mandaba anonimamente al blog del narco. Me relleva de coraje que estos blogs pongan su etiqueta en mis fotos o videos. Es la razon que e dejado de mandar informaccion. A uno se le debe respeto, uno es el que las consigue o anda al frente tomando estas fotos y videos. Yo tengo mas informaccion de lo que ustedes se imaginan pero no lo mando por que no me dan credito aun que quiero permanecer anonimo. Simplemente quiero que se le de credito a quien lo merece y no apropietarse del trabajo de uno. Eso es robar.
