Terror filled the streets of Rio Bravo as a group of men, presumably Zetas, threw at least five grenades at two bars and one business, injuring at least three people.

Rio Bravo is across the Rio Grande from the Pharr-Donna Area.

The attack began about 2:30 p.m. when a group of men in an SUV and a passenger car drove by the two bars and lobbed three grenades at the bar “La Lola” in the city’s East side, said a Mexican law enforcement official not authorized to speak to the media. He added that one grenade didn’t explode.

Moments later, another grenade was thrown at the Apocalipsis strip club in the downtown area. The grenade caused part of the establishment to catch fire and injured three people.

Soon after, another grenade was thrown outside of a dry cleaning business, with no injuries reported.

Authorities continue to investigate the attacks and are searching for the suspects, the law enforcement official said.

A source outside law enforcement said the grenades were thrown by a group of Zetas that managed to bypass roadblocks and security checkpoints in order to enter the city.
