Mexican security forces seize munitions in Reynosa as 3 more die

Three suspects were killed in Reynosa, Tamaulipas Tuesday and Wednesday, including two armed suspects who were killed in an armed encounter with a Mexican Army unit Tuesday night, according to official Mexican news sources.

The latest report bring the reported death toll in two days of fighting in Reynosa to 17. 

According to the news account, a Mexican Army road patrol was fired on Tuesday night by armed suspects who were aboard a Pontiac Torrent SUV near the intersection of Bulevar Del Maestro and  Avenida Mozart in Narciso Mendoza colony.

Army return fire killed two of the occupants, one of whom was identified as Fidel Gutierrez Gonzalez, 34.  The report hinted that rifles, pistols, one hand grenade, ammunition, tactical gear and the vehicle was seized following the incident.

Meanwhile Mexican Army unit conducted four raids in Reynosa  stretching out across Tuesday night and into late Wednesday morning, seizing a total of 76 rifles, six each 40mm grenade launchers, 12 each 40mm grenades, drugs and vehicles.

Tuesday night at a residence in  Hacienda de las Fuentes colony, Sector 4 near the intersection of calles Quebec and Liverpool, soldiers seized 22 rifles, two each 40mm grenade launchers, four each 40mm  grenades, three kilograms of crystal methamphetamine, 415 small packages of cocaine, 714 small packages of marijuana, 3,000 marijuana cigarettes, weapons magazines, ammunition and one vehicle.

Just after midnight Wednesday in  Los Caracoles colony, a Mexican Army patrol was fired on by armed suspects who were moving aboard nine vehicles, who then immediately fled the scene, apparently abandoning their vehicles.

Following that incident soldiers seized 19 rifles, one pistol, three grenade launchers, three each 40mm grenades, 103 weapons magazines, ammunition, 10 kilograms of marijuana and the nine vehicles.

Eight hours later at 0840 hrs also in  Los Caracoles coloy, a Mexican Army road patrol found one vehicle abandoned with one suspect dead inside.  Soldiers also seized 10 rifles, five grenades and 67 weapons magazines.

At about 1100 hrs in Riberas del Bosque colony soldiers located an abandoned vehicle which contained  25 rifles, two grenades, two 40mm grenade launchers, 2,100 rounds of ammunition and 12 weapons magazines.

A news story which appeared Wednesday afternoon in the online edition of Milenio news daily said that numerous shootouts had taken place throughout the city and that local criminal gangs were uimplementing road bloacks in various points in the city.

In one incident, according to the article, armed suspects entered an OXXO convenience store demanding car keys from customers so their vehicles can be used to block roads.  The story failed to say where that incident took place or whether it was just one of many.

Another part of the news report said that large convoys were reported moving in Reynosa.

All of these reports were gleaned from Twitter and other social media.

A separate Milenio news report hinted that Reynosa mayor José Elias Leal had at least discussed asking for either more army reinforcements or a curfew in the municipality, but denied actually making a request for either.

  1. Wtf! Sicarios were abandoning their and leaving their rifles behind! Hug? You mean to tell me they were unwilling to fight the guachos for their bosses! There has to be some pissed off bosses! I guess their realizing that dying for their bosses for a mere $10,000 pesos a month, if not less, is not worth it.

  2. I know the report says army forces were fired upon but, unless these guys are barely functioning retards and there are a shit ton of red flags saying that they are, but I just dont believe these guys just start to blast the army guys. So whomever knows what usually happens in these situations that are constantly repeted in the news, is it that the army fires on these guys, the cartel guys fire their volleys and then the shit is on,or does the army just start blowing these guys away on sight, and the guys just are trying to fight back? Please let me know..

    1. A lot if not most military is not paid by cartels, they pay the generals in charge of certain areas and soldiers listen orders from them.most of the military is fed up with cartels they don't longer want a reason to shoot at a sicario a with a weapon, if u rolling with sicario a and they catch y'all , SOS is how most military is starting to be with em and that's how it has to be done ,shoot first ask wat cartel they belong to after

    4. The military usually fires first these guys are rolling in convoys most of the time and the military detects them rolling deep and just get fired on, plus you can spot them from a mile away with their brand new stolen trucks! lol

    The Mexican Army under General Gavlin two years ago wrote new rules of engagement stating that if a site or patrol commander observed the presence of weapons and the suspects holding the weapons had failed to obey any army signals, the order can be given to open fire on the suspects. The idea was that as long as a site or patrol commander gave suspects the chance to surrender without a shot, army units could not fire on suspects if those suspects obeyed signals.

    At the time the rules were released, I figured that the new rules simply codified army practice.

    How it works in practice, I have zero idea, but it is clear that in instances in which civilians were fired on outside of those rules, prosecutions could come into play.
