Violence erupted tonight the result of clashes between cells of organized crime in the town of Nuevo Progreso, resulting in a flurry of shootouts and blockades generated in several block of this border town. 
The first shooting occurred at 19:00 hours on side streets of the of Nuevo Progreso, the neighboring town of Progreso, Texas. According to unofficial reports, the shootings were continuous at first, but then became more sporadic, the persecutions alerted the inhabitants of this town of 25,000 residents. 

Shootouts also erupted in neighboring Rio Bravo and Reynosa municipalities. 

The confrontation between criminal cells has intensified after the arrest last week of “El Comandante Alemán”, the leader of the Gulf Cartel in that municipality. 
Miguel Angel Alemán Salinas was the presumed successor of Juan Manuel Rodríguez Rodríguez, aka “Juan Perros”, who had just been arrested a month prior. 
Authorities are yet to report numbers of injured or killed in the shootings between criminal groups.

Blockages were reported at the junction of the Reynosa-Rio Bravo highway, access to Reynosa International Airport, access to the Reynosa-Matamoros highway, the Rio Bravo to Reynosa highway and near the Pharr-Reynosa International bridge.
