Cartel violence spills into Texas as gunmen storm past U.S. border security

(BREITBART) — PIEDRAS NEGRAS, Coahuila — Two cartel gunmen fleeing from a raging gun battle with Mexican authorities ran through U.S. border security measures twice as they crossed into Texas and back; using their vehicle to ram barriers.

The cartel gunmen were able to cross into Eagle Pass through International Bridge #2 by running the security checkpoints. Shortly after they crossed back through a second bridge that was closed at the time. The gunmen used their vehicle to ram security barriers and later ditched it escape on foot.

The violence began overnight near the rural community of Nava, Coahuila, when authorities received information about two gunmen riding in a late model white Toyota Tundra, information provided to Breitbart Texas by Coahuila law enforcement revealed.

State police officers with a special investigative unit spotted the vehicle along Boulevard Carranza near the intersection with Airport Boulevard in the border city of Piedras Negras. Officers tried to pull over the gunmen but were met with gunfire as they sped off–setting off a high-speed chase.

The gunmen were able to reach the main plaza in Piedras Negras, Plaza de Las Culturas, where they once again engaged law enforcement in a short firefight. As they made their way to the International Bridge #2, gunmen rammed their way through other vehicles and barriers as they used the inbound lanes through Mexican Customs to reach the U.S. side of the bridge.

For the second day in a row, the once peaceful Mexican beach resort city of Cancun has become the scene of raging cartel violence.

A series of simultaneous attacks at both the headquarters of the Quintana Roo State Prosecutors Office and the Police Communications Building (C-4) spread terror among the citizens of the resort city. The attack was carried out by cartel gunmen on motorcycles who fired semi-automatic rifles and threw grenades at the buildings and into the streets.

One video taken by citizen journalists provides audio of the large scale gun battle as cartel gunmen and military forces clashed in the city streets.

Another video revealed moments of panic as individuals inside the state prosecutors office sought cover from the raging gun battle outside. In the video, individuals can be heard yelling orders to “stay down” as gunfire can be heard in the background.

A leaked surveillance video obtained by Breitbart Texas revealed the moment that a woman narrowly missed being the victim of a grenade attack. The video shows a woman walking down a city street as she misses an exploding grenade by inches.
