Shootout on Texas border with drug cartel
Early this morning, U. S. law enforcement officers participating in a multi-agency Texas Ranger Recon operation were fired upon from Mexico
while attempting to interdict a large drug load. At least three
suspected drug runners were wounded in the exchange of gunfire.
A suspicious vehicle on the U. S. side of the Rio Grande River was
observed along with two cartel drug recovery boats. Three law
enforcement patrol boats arrived on the scene and received heavy gun fire from the Mexico side while attempting to interdict the drug-laden boats.
Mexican authorities were notified of the abandoned cartel drug-laden boats and are on the scene.
