    PIEDRAS NEGRAS, Coahuila — Police in this Mexican border state continue to hunt for two Los Zetas gunmen who escaped a battle by driving to Texas and back without U.S authorities stopping them. Contrary to information released by Washington, the shooters remain at large.

    The violence occured last week when two Los Zetas gunmen riding in a white Toyota Tundra with Mexican plates fought with Coahuila state cops in a high-speed chase and throughout this border city, injuring eight cops and causing multiple crashes, Breitbart Texas reported.


    To avoid capture, the cartel gunmen made their way to one of the two international bridges that connect this border city with Eagle Pass, Texas. They rammed their way through various vehicles, turnstiles, fences, and other security measures set in place by U.S. Customs and Border Protection. Breitbart Texas has been able to confirm that the gunmen were able to leave the area before any gunfire was exchanged.


    Rather than stay in Texas, the gunmen made a short drive through some city streets in Eagle Pass and quickly drove back to Mexico. While U.S. law enforcement gathered at the #2 International Bridge to investigate the prior incident, the gunmen drove through International Bridge #1, a facility that was closed at the time and had minimal security.

    The gunmen were able to ram a turnstile and fence to get back to Mexico, where they left the truck and managed to successfully flee on foot.



    An initial statement provided to Breitbart Texas by U.S. Customs and Border Protection claimed that the gunmen were arrested by Mexican authorities. Breitbart Texas spoke with various law enforcement agencies in Coahuila who revealed that while the suspects have been identified, they remain at large.

    EXCLUSIVE: Cartel Violence Spills into Texas as Gunmen Storm Past U.S. Border SecurityFuerza Coahuila

    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.

    Coahuila state police officers contacted their counterparts in Texas. Before American authorities were able to apprehend the shooters, they made their way to another international bridge, locally known as Bridge 1. While the crossing was closed at the time, the gunmen were able to ram through the security barriers and make their way back into Mexico.

    The Mexican Army, Fuerza Coahuila, and local police officers had been combing the area however, they were able to make their way to a nearby neighborhood called Mundo Nuevo where they abonded the vehicle and fled on foot. Authorities were able to locate the white SUV that had multiple bullet holes and extensive body damage.

    During the initial gun battle and chase, two Coahuila police officers from the investigative unit and six officers with Fuerza Coahuila were injured. The six officers with Fuerza Coahuila appear to have been injured in a crash during the high-speed chase. Authorities have not revealed how the two other officers were injured.

    CBP provided the following to Breitbart Texas regarding the episode:

    Shortly after 11 p.m. on Thursday, July 13, a white Toyota Tundra that had avoided inspection in Piedras Negras, Mexico was observed at Camino Real International Bridge. CBP officers temporarily stopped traffic as a precaution. As CBP officers approached the vehicle, it accelerated at a high rate of speed and fled north through the outbound lanes and shortly thereafter fled south at Eagle Pass Bridge I, which had closed for the evening at 11 p.m., crashing through a locked gate. Mexican military authorities in Piedras Negras stopped the vehicle and arrested the occupants. CBP would defer to Government of Mexico authorities regarding any inquiries regarding the subjects and the investigation.

    Editor’s Note 1: This article has been updated to reflect CBP’s comment.

    Editor’s Note 2: Breitbart Texas traveled to the Mexican States of Tamaulipas, Coahuila, and Nuevo León to recruit citizen journalists willing to risk their lives and expose the cartels silencing their communities. The writers would face certain death at the hands of the various cartels that operate in those areas including the Gulf Cartel and Los Zetas if a pseudonym were not used. Breitbart Texas’ Cartel Chronicles are published in both English and in their original Spanish. This article was written by Coahuila’s “J.M. Martinez” and Breitbart Texas’ Ildefonso Ortiz.
