Video footage shows intense chase during a gun battle with the Mexican military in the northeastern state of Tamaulipas near the border with Texas on Friday.
Local media outlets reported a convoy from the Mexican Army’s 16th Motorized Cavalry was met with fire approximately at 3am local time by members of the Tropa del Infierno [Inferno Troop], a hit squad tied to the Cártel del Noreste [Northeast Cartel].
The gun battle took place on a road in the Nuevo Laredo neighborhood of Fresnos, a 10-mile drive from the Juárez–Lincoln International Bridge, which connects the United States and Mexico over the Rio Grande.
Army officials did not report any casualties or injuries on their part following the war-like battle. At least three military vehicles were damaged in the attack.
Soldiers recovered 12 assault rifles, including two Barrett .50 caliber sniper rifles and eight AR-15 rifles.
