Two gunfights took place Tuesday between armed groups and elements of the Mexican Army  according to a news item.posted on website of Revista Proceso.

The news item quoted the Tamaulipas Procurduria General de Justicia de Estado, or state attorney general that one gunfight took place in  Mil Cumbres colony, leaving one unidentified individual dead, and an abandoned Jeep Liberty SUV at the scene. That gunfight took place at around 1350 hrs.

A second confrontation took place Lomas del Real de Jarachina Sur colony where armed suspects fired on a Mexican Army road patrol. Mexican Army return gunfire killed three suspects. One GMC pickup truck was seized in the aftermath.

Subsequently armed groups in Reynosa put up roadblocks, blocking  Bulevar Colosio, UAT Rhode bridge and Bulevar Morelos and others.

Thursday additional gunfights and roadblocks took place in Reynosa, but no reports of dead or wounded have been released by official sources. 

A news report posted on the website of Noticias de Tamaulipas news website said that one civilian had been wounded in Calle Quintana Roo, when the victim ran from the area and was reportedly fired on by Mexican Army personnel.

Detentions have been reported, however, but the numbers or identifications have not been released.

According to a news item posted on the website of Televisa, Thursday's gunfights took place on Zona Centro on Calle Madero.  Gunfire was also reported in Cumbres and Jarachina colonies.

Mexican Army units had reportedly been reinforcing Reynosa since last Tuesday, and had intensified patrols in the city since Thursday morning.

Puro zetas?? PURE trash, pure filth, pure rapists, pure evil. If I wasn't positive that you are a mentally scarred individual who has nothing in his life so he day dreams reading these reports and starts to believe he's a Z and then a Golfo the next day etc. probably doesn't speak Spanish, and listens to bullshit corridos about how crazy these scum are and they go down with open arms and probably was pissed that the Marina De Mexico declined his offer of road dome on the way to his holding cell where him and his "closet bodyguards took turns fucking eachother with their toothbrush. Your a joke and do not even try to claim to be a zeta because first of all the filth does not say puro zetaz they're not the niggas that stole your lunch money throughout your obviously short time in school. And a true zeta or real cheer leader wouldn't want to claim responsibility for heating a plaza when your goal is to get the law after the plaza jefes this site is to inform people that care and get the world to wake up to the problems in Mexico, it's to help end the filth not for scum like you who have the audacity cheer these demons on. Hell will reject these bastards they are not worthy of hell a worse place has to be under construction. The best part of you slid down your mothers blown out labia. And on that note sir FUCK OFF and have a wonderful Christian day hahaha
SALUDOS

Does a few killings really bring that much disruption to these crews?I always wondered why they are supposed to make people join with them.
Like they were supposed to have done with the migrants,it makes you wonder how many they really have on the ground.If they start gettin killed,do others get the fuck outta dodge?But you see and hear about 50 truck convoys?Where the fuck are they,or,they get the call to meet up?Fuck,who knows how many they got in their squares.
