Yesterday this was reported but I held the story back to get further information. Since readers have asked about it I have decided to post what little there is. I really am not sure of its validity however this is what was reported on KNVO Noticias 48 who broke the story. ..Paz, Chivis
Unofficial reports state that in the clashes yesterday between the boundaries of the cities of Matamoros and Reynosa, Hector Salgado alias Metro 4′ was killed. “Metro 4 or M4 was/is a member of the high command of the criminal organization the Gulf Cartel. The M4 is a native of Matamoros Tamaulipas, son of a customs agent in the area.
UPDATE:The apparent death of Hector Salgado alias M4 (Metro) occurred in the early hours of January 15
At 2: 20 am on 15 January there was a situation of risk by fracc. Valle Vergel summits and San José.
There commenced a confrontation between armed civilians vs. armed civilians (organized criminals)
At 3: 30 the person known as M4 was taken to the operating room at the Hospital after entering wounded. He allegedly died during the intervention.
While in the street there were reports of convoys comprising scores of vehicles belonging to the CDG patrolling the streets of Reynosa.
While people in the streets spread 2 versions... . choose yours
1.-Zetas had entered Reynosa resulting in the clash.
2.-There had been internal conflict/split between CDG (word on the street says the nicknames are such as Tachas, Cortez Salinas, Wero (perhaps the gringo)
Apparently the second of the divided organization aboard would be of Mario Pelon aka 20X
As soon as violence was heard a safety alert from civilians, the decent people who care, through networks which more or less said:
SAFETY ALERT REYNOSA, Based on incoming xxxxx, we expect high risk situations, to INCREASE AWARENESS AND AVOID TRANSIT IF possible.
UPDATE: INSIGHT CRIME is running the story but interestingly they have reported tht their sources in Mexico have confirmed the story as true. Link to that post here
