For the fourth consecutive day, shootings and deaths in Reynosa. 

Although so far there are no official reports, one of the strongest clashes occurred in the Lomas Section, where neighbors say four armed men were left dead on the street, six others in a taxi and two more in the interior of a dwelling. 

By air and land, the clashes spread to the Monterey-Matamoros outpost where vehicles were
abandoned and numerous units were consumed by fire in a junk yard.


In the Villa Esmeralda fractionation, personnel from the Forensic Medical Service withdrew two other bodies of people killed during the shootout in the southeast of the city, although  neighbors said that inside the building there were more dead men.

At that place  were seized weapons and vehicles used by men killed during this early morning. From there, they moved to Fuentes Lomas Section to collect the bodies of the rest of the men.

 Elements of the Mexican Army, Secretary of Marine, State and Expert Services, are concentrated in both sectors where there were dead to investigate and gather  evidence of the facts.

The shootings began around 2 am, when detonations began to be heard in various parts of the city.  As is usual in Reynosa  social network users were the primary source of news. The action of high-powered weapons, coupled with the sound of the helicopter of the Secretary of the Navy, awoke the population that alerted the clashes through social networks.

The reynosense population lived that day of terror as more than a dozen dead killed  during the early hours of Sunday as the shootings and persecutions were unleashed in the south of the city



Social Media is reporting that the violence and death is continuing into today (Monday).  “A man executed, tied hands, was found a few moments ago on the bank of the channel Anzalduas, in the ejido Palo Blanco. So far has not been identified the body that also had bandaged the face with cinnamon tape.  Wrapped in a blanket, wearing a cherry shirt, denim trousers and black sneakers, they left the body lying close to a vacant lot.  In the stomach you can see a red spot, like from blows suffered at the moment of being tortured.”

Social media is also reporting that 3 waiters from a bar are awaiting being turned over to the Magisteria  police after Transit Police stopped them for driving the wrong way on a one way street and found a body in the vehicle


The waiters from the bar were traveling in a white Ford Ranger with several black plastic garbage bags in the back of the truck.  The Transit Police were only intending to issue a ticket for the traffick violation until while searching the truck they found a dead body in a garbage bag under all the others. 
In this situation the highway agents immediately detained the suspects and then put them at the disposal of the ministerial authorities for them to take over.

The events occurred at 03:00 o’clock this morning in the street Azucena between Jazmines and Boulevard Morelos of the colony Fernandez Gomez.
