CARTEL SHOOTOUT: High-Ranking Mexican Drug Lord was Gunned At During Chaos Near Border

Published

on

A narco-terrorist and high-ranking leader in the Cartel Del Noreste (CDN) faction of Los Zetas was shot in a series of shootouts with state police in the border of city of Nuevo Laredo.

The drug lord and his close associates were nearly captured on New Year’s Eve. This incident led to subsequent shootouts the following day as cartel assailants targeted officers.

Mexico’s recently created National Guard stayed on the sidelines during these attacks.

The New Year’s Day shootouts had several injuries and casualties. Additionally, one innocent bystander was shot near a hospital. As a response to the ongoing violence, the Webb County Sheriff in Texas issued an alert advising residents to not go into Mexico. Similarly, the U.S. Consulate in Nuevo Laredo asked American citizens to take the violence in account when traveling.

Breitbart Texas reported that drug lord in question was Hector Raul “El Tory” Luna Luna. Three cartel gunmen were killed while one police officer sustained injuries, according to reports from U.S. law enforcement sources working in Nuevo Leon.

Despite being wounded during the exchange, El Tory was able to escape with the aid from “Hell’s Troops or Tropas Del Infierno,” a group in armored vehicles to CDN-Los Zetas and an ally Juan Gerardo “El Huevo” Trevino Chavez. El Tory is the same cartel actor behind the 2008 grenade and shooting attack on the U.S. Consulate in Monterrey.

El Tory was captured in 2010, but a Mexican judged released him in 2018 under suspicious circumstances.

This shootout represents another example of how Mexico has increasingly become a failed state.

It’s not just everyday shootings involving the use of weapons and equipment you can find at your local gun store; there is now military-grade weaponry being used across the American border,

Given these disturbing developments, the U.S. should consider following through with the construction of a border wall and a radical overhaul of its immigration system that goes along with its national security needs and economic interests.
