Shootouts In Tamaulipas Leave 7 Dead



Translated by Valor for Borderland Beat

Shootouts between the police and alleged criminals, occurring both Thursday and Friday in Río Bravo, Tamaulipas, left seven dead.

First, on Thursday, the Coordination Group of Tamaulipas (GCT) reported that: state police belonging to the Fuerza Tamaulipas (Tamaulipas Force) were attacked on two occasions by members of a criminal group, leaving two dead in the line of duty, while a policewoman was injured, along with an innocent bystander.

In the first attack, which occurred shortly after 19:00 hours in Independencia street located at the center of the border municipality, two unidentified gunmen who were driving in a sports car were killed.

During this attack, state policeman Ramón Zúñiga died, while a policewoman was injured by a gunshot.  Her condition was reported as stable and out of danger.

During the second attack, the state police were searching for the assailants, who were also attacked by armed gunmen at the crossing of the streets Independencia and Galeana, leaving Officer José Dionisio Bañuelos Chavira dead while an innocent bystander was injured.

The attackers, who were traveling in several vehicles, created blockades in some parts of the city in order to evade federal forces who were sent in to support the forces of the Fuerza Tamaulipas.  The assailants escaped taking exit roads to Reynosa, Río Bravo and Valle Hermoso.

The blockades were subsequently removed by the military and federal authorities, which secured three rifles, two pistols, magazines, cartridges, and a car.

Meanwhile on Friday, the group reported on three more deaths in the municipality of Río Bravo:


“…state police of the Fuerza Tamaulipas were attacked by members of a criminal group.  Repelling the aggression, three gunmen were gunned down.

The attack occurred at 4:25 am at the crossing of the streets Guanajuato and Pípila, in the district Fundadores of this border town.

The state police conducted ground reconnaissance at that point of the municipality when they were suddenly attacked by gunmen who were onboard a white Jeep Grand Cherokee with Texas plates.

In defense of their lives, the forces of the Fuerza Tamualipas repelled the attack, killing three criminals who have not yet been identified and who were between 20-25 years old.

Inside the Jeep, rifles, magazines, rounds of ammunition and two cell phones were secured, which were made available to the Public Prosecutor’s Office of the Federation.”

    4. CDG and Z fractured and fought for the same connections and trade routes. When the Z pacted with Juarez and BLO they could purchase from them or be hired as enforcers.
      CDG has consolidated heavily and isn't as effective at transportation as it used to. CDG has internal disputes and no known allies. It appears that Reynosa is where CDG drug cartel faction operates from. The rest of the factions are mainly into fuel theft ransoms and extortions similar to the Zetaz with a different name and worse substance connection. Atleast they don't let corridos tell fake stories CDG has always confronted military. Even when everyone thought CDG was no more they've managed to operate and defend the turf.

    5. @ 4:12 PM ...

      Because they don't have a domestic source of drugs and their international connections are a lot weaker after all of the arrests/deaths over the years.

      Most of the drugs cultivated or produced in Mexico domestically are cultivated or produced in Sinaloa/Chihuahua or the Michoacan/Guerrero area, generally. Those are the major source areas for marijuana, heroin, and meth. The precursor drugs for meth labs come in through the Pacific ports (Lazaro Cardenas, for example) from Asia. Weed plants and poppies grow in the Sinaloa/Chihuahua Sierras and La Tierra Caliente of Michoacan/Guerrero. Those areas are under CDS and CJNG control (well Tierra Caliente is very contested, but CJNG is the biggest force at the moment).

      Coke comes from South America. A lot of that depends on personal connections between cartel heads in Mexico and Colombia. Most of the Zetas and CDG have lost almost all of their leadership from their peak power like 5 years ago. Mostly deaths from in-fighting and fighting against other cartels. Some are in prison. So on. For both cartels, the quality of cartel leadership declined. You used to have former Mexican Army special forces leading the Zetas and long-time traffickers leading the CDG, now you mostly have 20-something Meth-head tweakers. Highly doubt their international connects are the same, in light of that.

      I don't know the answer, but it's a valid question.

    6. @12:03 great response. I'd answer that yes there's tons of marijuana y other contraband they smuggle and that is bought from the two groups you mention, but that goes for their South American product too because CDS has got their tentacles so deep into the groups with large processing labs that are able to access the most difficult precursors regularly and that can source enough paste, and own the routas secure enough to keep supply happening. CDG makes millions a day controlling Reynosa, Rio Bravo, Matamoros but 1) this is little amount compared to CDS and 2) their margins don't compare to the other two b/c they always defending and buy at prices CDS wants to sell to them.

    2. At some point you are right to get this problem started in the right direction the people of Tamaulipus need to stand up to both the Cartels and the Corruption. It will be dangerous and good people will die, before it gets turned around. But when ever situations get this bad, getting out of it, will cause problems historically. If it helps any, McAllen is going down the same road as Tamaulipus did.and if they do, they will have the same problem with getting back out of the problem.

    3. Don't know about anyone else but here in tamaulipas we have balls.

    4. 9:25 if you guys had balls you would stand up to criminals but obviously you guys dont (chicken balls )

    5. 1244 I'm sorry you don't understand the sarcasm apparent in 925's post, which is obviously a response to 1235. But hey, maybe you should worry less about balls and more on brains.

    6. Rich you can't really compare the two. It's two different worlds. Unless you have lived in both it may be difficult to understand. Let me try with a metaphor. Mexico is like a wolf or street dog. Hungry. Can't depend on nobody. Got to hussle for the next morsel of food. McAllen? A fat yard dog or lap dog not really starving just hungry for next meal. And if foods a little late not a problem it will arrive. Food stamps never late. Get fat relax. Which had we rather be? Coyote p.s. Take your damn pic and name off fool before you make someone mad or are you trying to drum up business's by showing how tough (naive cause these niggas aint playing) you are. Good example you can do that in USA decent police to protect fools but I wouldn't recommend it in Mexico. Peace

  5. No witnesses left alive, and the fuerza tamaulipas dead might have been killed by friendly fire as always, to silence them...
    --if the cartels are so fractured, how can they install so many blockades? In so little time?

    1. I have seen blockades, it is too easy. A couple of armed man can go and make 10 in an hour, just stop a driver, put the car/truck crossed, spill some gas inside and go to the next.

    2. How about you wrap your head around the fact that some people are outlaws and fight the police with the aim to kill them, and also, don't want to be capturedso they evade police by any means necessary. Oh yeah, some bad guys get killed to in the process. Not a stretch of the imagination, heh? Go ask the injured innocent party whom could tell you.

    3. Los Michoacanos in my experience son bien bravos pero tambien bien evidiosos como las viejas brujas. Pinches "mal de ojo" jotos.

  6. The state and feds always show up late, and shooters escape .

  7. And many times the government sicarios arrive very early, recruit the criminals and prepare to kill them all when they catch them in the act...
    --the poolice and military narcos can't be really killed all the time, nobody will want to ""work"...
