Elements of the Marina took down Luis Eduardo Monsivais Gloria, regional Boss of Los Zetas in Monclova, and three of his accomplices, informed the State Security.
"In an security action derived from investigative work, elements of the Marina took down four presumed criminals who moments earlier had initiated an attack with firearms against agents from SEMAR", said an official communication.
The confrontation occurred when the Marines, arrived at an apartment number 2005 Calle La Salle, between avenues Las Granjas and Segunda, in the La Salle Colonia, in the City of Monclova, with the intention to capture the Capo.
After the confrontation, there were two men and two women dead, of which only one has been identified, Luis Eduardo Monsivais Gloria, who is an operator of Los Zetas in the central region of the state.
In the apartment in which the criminals were hiding, the Marina found three handguns and one rifle, 22 rounds of .50 calibre ammunition, various magazines, tactical equipment, and two vehicles without registration plates, and drugs.
The death of the Zeta regional leader in the centre of Coahuila occurred a day after the capture in San Pedro Garza Garcia, Nuevo Leon, of Daniel Menera Sierra, regional boss of said criminal group in Nuevo Leon.
The Federal Authorities documented that the detentions occurred in Nuevo Leon and in Coahuila were possible thanks to the capture of Omar Trevino Morales "El Z 42", that occurred in a residence of San Pedro Garza Garcia.
