A total of seven armed suspects were killed in a gunfight near Nuevo Laredo, Tamaulipas with a unit of the Mexican Army, according to Mexican news accounts.

Reports are unclear when the gun battle took place.

The army unit was apparently on road patrol on Mexico Federal highway 2 at about Kilometer 17 when it came under small arms fire.  Army return fire killed seven.  Four other armed suspects were detained following the gunfight.

Soldiers in the aftermath seized seven rifles, 47 weapons magazines  and 947 rounds of ammunition and two vehicles.

A total of six armed suspects were killed in a running gunfight between Mexican Army forces and presumed shooters with the Los Zetas criminal group March 13th in western Nuevo Laredo.  That battle led to the capture of a Los Zetas leader Carlos Alejandro Guiterrez Escobedo AKA El Fabiruchis.  Alejandro Guiterrez was the putative replacement for another Los Zetas boss, Geraldo Guerra Valdez AKA El Guerra, who was killed in Nuevo Laredo March 6th along with 12 other armed suspects in a gun battle with a Mexican Army patrol.

Another gunfight between armed suspects and security forces in Nuevo Laredo took place last Saturday, according to Twitter postings  and one Mexican press account, but those encounters have been so far unconfirmed.

A total of 20 armed suspects have been killed by Mexican Army troops in and around Nuevo Laredo since March 6th.

Yes, one boss is caught and another 5 come in. But in the case with los zetas, it has worked to make them less organised. Los zeta use to be a dangerous well oiled military machine - now they are just like anyother cartel.

Yeah! The plaza boss gets his punk ass killed by the Marines, and the halcon eating a Maruchan noodle soup in the closest corner gets promoted to plaza boss, so he can get his ass killed protecting his boss el cuarenta, who in fact has never been seen participating in any gunfight against the Mexican Army or Marines. But not to worry, he has about 200 drug addicts ready to die for his yellow ass.
