Lucio R.: Using info from El Universal, El Debate Mexican Fed Agencies and NBC News
Slow your roll while reading this, Mexico news outlets are reporting that, NBC has reported Joaquin "El Chapo" Guzman Loera was wounded by gunshots in the face and one of his legs, by elements of the Marina (Semar) that have besieged in the mountains between Durango and Sinaloa .
El Debate has the headline; “NBC: El Chapo Shot in Leg and Face”
However I can find no such article from NBC. The two articles posted by NBC both report Chapo has wounds to the face and leg, but give no specifics as to how that occurred.
Their Headline of 7 hrs ago still gives no specifics see below latest headline:

'El Chapo' on the Run: Mexican Drug Lord Has Leg, Face Injuries: Sources
Guzman Loera escaped the Federal Social Rehabilitation Center (Cefereso) of the Altiplano in the State of Mexico on 11 July.
According to sources in the discussion, people have fear and stress in Cosalá, Sinaloa. This reaffirmed by the state lawmaker Cosalá Lucero Sanchez Lopez, adding that eight people are missing.
Beautiful Cosalá is one of Mexico’s Pueblo Magico, the sierra town has a small population of 7K.
She has been identified by the office of the Attorney General of the Republic as the new girlfriend of 'El Chapo' and mother of his youngest son.
Mexico confirms injuries but says not from fire fight clash
The Security Cabinet said fugitive Joaquin Guzman Loera, alias "El Chapo", made a hasty flight, which according to the information gathered, resulted in injuries to his leg and face.
In a joint statement, the agencies that make up the Security Cabinet detailed that these injuries were not the result of a direct confrontation. They made reference to the information they have published in national and international media.
"From the day of the escape of Joaquin Guzman Loera occurred, the institutions of the Security Cabinet launched a coordinated strategy with the aim of achieving its recapture," included are the Ministries of the Interior, National Defense, SEMAR and Marina Mexico, and National Security Commission (CNS) and the Attorney General's Office (PGR).
They stated, that as a part of these efforts, they are depending on intelligence and information from international agencies (United States), and have carried out operations in the country, in recent weeks primarily they have focused on the northwest region of the country.
"According to the instructions of the President, the Security Cabinet continues to perform all actions to achieve the re-arrest of this criminal," the statement said.
At first, in a media conference, national security commissioner, Renato Sales Heredia, said that "he had nothing about that," regarding the information broadcast by NBC on the operation against the drug trafficker, and his injuries.
However, Mexico is following suit by being quiet when U.S. reports re published but then respond a few days after the fact confirming the story….to a degree. NBC sources are directly from U.S. agencies involved in the sierras, namely the Drug Administration.
In a statement Friday, officials said intelligence pointed them to focus on northeast Mexico
Mexican officials said they launched an operation in the area, prompting the capo to make a hurried escape that left him with injuries on his face and one leg.
Authorities did not provide specifics on the date and exact location of the operation, or how he got injured just confirmed he was injured and said:
“It is important to note that these injuries were not the result of a direct confrontation”.
So, they know he is injured, but do not know from what action, but do know it “was not” the result of gunshots.
