Gunmen kill 7 warehouse employees in Reynosa as turf war intensifies

"El Yogui", the warehouse in Reynosa, Tamaulipas, where the attack occurred
On Sunday, gunmen stormed a beer warehouse in Reynosa, Tamaulipas, and killed seven people. Initially, it was suspected that the attack may have been a failed robbery attempt. However, it was later established that the attack was organized crime-related. Investigators suggest that the attack is part of a violent turf war waging in Reynosa between rival Gulf Cartel factions.

At least half of the victims were executed with a coup de grâce, as shown in the video provided by Borderland Beat. Five of the victims were approximately twenty-years-old and one was in his mid-thirties. The 55-year-old warehouse owner, Eduardo López ("El Yogui"), was also killed. He was one of the main Corona and Bud Light beer distributors in Tamaulipas.

The beer warehouse where the attack occurred is known as "El Yogui", in reference to the owner's nickname. It is located in Voluntad y Trababjo, an industrial neighborhood in Reynosa. These depots are sometimes used as drug sale/distribution locations by organized crime groups.

According to eye-witnesses, the gunmen arrived in two vehicles early in the morning as the warehouse was barely opening. They stormed the facility by spraying bullets at multiple employees.

During the attack, several employees ran to the back of the warehouse to get cover. 7 people were massacred; at least half of them were killed in a coup de grâce, which discarded the possibility of a robbery.

This attack occurs shortly after the supposed release of Juan Manuel Rodríguez Rodríguez, a former Gulf Cartel boss in Reynosa. He is sometimes referred to as "Juan Perros" and often mistaken with his son Juan Manuel Rodríguez García, nicknamed "Juan Perros Jr." Borderland Beat was not able to officially confirm Juan Perros's supposed release by press time.

Turf war in Reynosa
Comments left by readers in Valor Tamaulipeco, a website that covers cartel-related activity in Tamaulipas, suggested that the attack was stemmed from a Gulf Cartel turf war between the regional bosses of Los Metros faction.


It is rumored that Reynosa kingpin Comandante Alemán is working with Juan Perros, his in-law, to take over the city from three individuals: Metro 21 (El Nabor), Metro 22 (La Mierda) and Metro 1 (El Mimi). These three gang members reportedly have the backing of Los Escorpiones, another Gulf Cartel faction based out of Matamoros.

Comandante Alemán also has the support of Cesar Morfin Morfin (El Primito) and Metro 36 (Mono). This last individual is also reportedly working with a San Fernando faction to drive out his rivals in Reynosa.

Rumors stated that the attackers were likely part of the faction headed by Comandante Maistrin, who heads the Rio Bravo plaza.

Investigation
Following the shootout, paramedics and police officers arrived at the scene and cordoned the area. The bodies of the victims were sent to the local morgue to their autopsy, as required by Mexican law. The National Guard and the Tamaulipas State Police are currently investigating the incident. None of the perpetrators have been arrested.

(Update): On April 8, civilians on social media began spreading the photo of a man reportedly involved in the attack. He was identified as Marco Polo Avilés Gallardo (born 28 January 1993), a Tampico native who lived in Reynosa. The picture shows him inside the warehouse while holding a firearm. People were able to identify him based on his Facebook photos.

    2. Jaliscas elite lol. Gtfoh the only way jaliscas got into tamaulipas is cus the metras faction put in charge a man from jalisca. Lets see how that lasts. In other words las metras gave their assholes to jaliscas cus if jaliscas try to come into tamaulipas theyll get shredded even by the cdn which is the weakest armed group in tamaulipas. Mencha will never take tamaulipas. This aint michoacan this aint veracruz this aint oaxaca. And all jaliscas nut huggers get 😡

    3. True Michoacán has the elite but false on CJNG sicarios being all from Michoacán! Back in the day Zetas top sicarios we’re mostly all from Michoacán though.

      Delete
    4. Wrong. Zetas were from all over and most zetillas were from tamaulipas. Cdg and Zetas took michoacan from the valencia millenio cartel and gave it to carlos rosales. He owned michoacan till his arrest then his group became la fm.

      Delete
    5. Michoacán has always had independent cartel families. Zetas and CDG never took Michoacan just took Valencia’s out of the equation. Carlos Rosales never owned Michoacán your WRONG! And zeta and CDG top sicarios were mainly Michoacanos as Lazca would only recruit those with military backgrounds which Michoacanos are known to have. Most people from the border areas are not even from there. Quit posting wrong information on here!

    1. Reynosa plaza boss is el primito a csg metros comandante and man originally from the state of jalisca. The most powerful man in reynosa is probably el comandante choco. He has survived many plaza bosses and is one if not the biggest money maker in the faction. Also the corrupt narco governor cabeza de vaca is on the mix when it comes to reynosa and nuevo laredo.

  10. The unnecessary amount of lives being disposed of. With so much money being generated by organized crime one would think to ally oneself for longevity. But greed has blinded them of doing so.

  15. What's the difference between what these bad guys do for the cartels and what the us armed forces do in Afghanistan? Is it that one does it for drugs and the other for oil or heroin?

    1. Its called patriotism. Sanctioned and condoned by government without any criminal charges brought upon.

      Wars are the worst atrocities committed by mankind. Whether for religious/economical interests. These killings are killings in the end.

    2. No difference.

  16. What the hell why kill 7 unarmed citizens minding thier own business. Criminals love it at how easy it is to kill someone. Citizens got to carry arms to protect themselves.

    3. No theres a reason why Mexico restricts firearms from its citizens because they have no concept of firearm safety when they get a firearm they do dumb shit like this .Its been that way since the early 1800's to much macho/ego bullshit .It really is that basic .They will kill eachother over mundane stupid shit . Did you watch the video ? Case and point .

    4. Yes it would have been great if they had weapons to kill those, that got into the property, had the victims won in killing the lowlifes, reinforcements would have came back to kill them on another day. Your right citizens should carry weapons.

  17. People in Mexico are sitting ducks, because they cannot own and carry.

  18. Reynosa definitely the right spot. The fact those guys worked in beer distribution should've got them an instant pass.
