During the early hours of Friday there was a confrontation in the town of Guadalupe, Nuevo León between the military and the municipal police. Preliminary reports coming from authorities indicate that it was all a part of the confusion that prompted elements of the Municipal Police to confront the Mexican military.
The military had detected an armed commando in the streets of the community of Jardines de San Rafael, and this caused a pursuit to a nearby community of Rio, where the sicarios took refuge in an alley. According to the military, members of the municipal police arrived and attempted to back up the sicarios causing a shootout between the military and police. The shootout caused terror among the residents of the region who were awaken by the loud sounds of gunfire.
The incident lasted for more than 30 minutes that resulted in the arrest of three gunmen, as well as the detention of 10 policemen who were under investigation. One officer was reported as injured from the gunfight, and several cars and homes sustained damaged.
