Gunfights and roadblocks in Matamoros and Reynosa in Tamaulipas state has left a toll of nine armed suspects  and two soldiers dead, according to Mexican news, narcoboard and Twitter accounts.

An article posted on the website of El Sol de Zacatecas news daily said that shootouts began 1100 hrs Friday morning on the Reynosa to Tamaulipas highway near the villages of Empalme and Control Ramirez, and continued towards Lauro Villar  colony near avenidas Del Niño, 12 de Marzo and Marte R Gomez, Libramiento Emilio Portes Gil and  Avenida Lauro Villa until 1330 hrs.

Initially, press reports stated that no one has been hurt in the armed confrontation, however a later dispatch posted on he website of Proceso news weekly said that unidentified Tamaulipas officials confirmed nine armed suspects and two soldiers had been killed and several Mexican federal security forces effectives have been wounded.

The Proceso report said that a pursuit and subsequent gunfight ended at Playa Bagdad on Kilometer 15 of the Reynosa to Matomoros highway.

According to a separate news report posted on the website of Proceso news weekly, a Mexican federal forces raid on a residence in Modelo colony on Calle Santos Degollado, presumably on Thursday may have sparked the reaction by local drug gangs, to include roadblocks, which are a favorite tactic of drug gangs in cities.

The raid has reportedly netted Mexican security forces the capture of a  local drug gang leader, although the suspect's identity has yet to be released.

Separately, a tweet released described a Mexican Naval infantry unit  responding to a call at Kilometer 57 of Mexico Federal Highway 2 between Matamoros and Reynosa at around 0130 hrs Friday morning where three vehicles were found abandoned.  One of the vehicles, a Chevrolet Cheyenne pickup truck had a dead body inside.  two other abandoned sedans were also found at the scene.

The marine unit subsequently searched the area finding two unidentified armed suspects aboard a GMC Yukon SUV.  The two suspects surrendered to the marine unit without firing a shot.

  2. So is it fighting between golfo factions, or are the Marina trying to capture some boss? Is it that prick z42 trying to take advantage of all the recent arrests and killings of bosses? Any theories?

  3. I know Im off topic, but has anyone seen tierradelnarco's video where they talk about a televisa truck in nicaragua which was transporting $9.2 million not sure if dollards or pesos. They say televisa has been movin money and cocaine for a long time in central america. By the way actress alicia machado gave birth to El Indios child and a girl known as la chiva gave birth to El JJ's child even la Barbie said he had relationships with famous women. Televisa and Tv Azteca should be investigated, but as you all know pena nieto is just a puppet who will hide all their bullcrap. Just tought this story should get more attention.

    KILLUMINATI.

  7. To the soldiers that paid the ultimate price to make México a better place to live. We the hard working, honest people of México and the US of A pray that your brave souls rest in peace. God bless the Mexican Armed Forces. To the death drug traffickers, we pray that you rot in hell and that your souls never find peace. To the drug traffickers still alive and roaming our streets, you will pay for what you are doing now and have done in the past.

    1. Amen brotha... los buenos mexicanos estamos con nuestras fuerzas armadas y no apoyamos la escoria.the difference between a dead soldier and a dead maruchanero is dead soldier will always be remembered as a hero n his family n friends will be proud to say yes that's my son or yes I knew that guy.but a dead maruchan, shit family will be embarrassed to say that's a member of their family. Long live los nuevos heroes de Mexico.
