The elite group of the Secretariat of Public Security of Tamaulipas had a double confrontation with members of organized crime, in the triangle formed by the municipalities of Valle Hermoso, San Fernando and Reynosa, resulting in two alleged criminals killed , three police officers injured , a vehicle and armament confiscation.
The first attack was recorded at 1:45 p.m. on Tuesday on the San Fernando-Reynosa highway, at the height of the La Purísima ejido, near the point known as “La Y” and which separates the route to Matamoros.
A group of elite agents belonging to the Tamaulipas Intelligence and Studies Analysis Center left Victoria City for a base near Reynosa. On the way they were surprised by an armed convoy.
The criminals were able to injure, not seriously, a state agent, who was taken to a hospital.
Because they were outnumbered the officers asked for support, so various corporations moved to the site and by helicopter trying to locate the gunmen without succeeding.
The second confrontation occurred four hours later in a gap that leads from San Fernando to Matamoros at the height of the Francisco Villa ejido.
The special agents were on guard and in the surprise attack by a caravan of men two policemen were injured. According to a report, their injuries are also minor.
By repelling the aggression, the officers managed to kill two criminals by also securing two weapons, as well as two vehicles. The rest of the individuals managed to flee.
The triangle formed between the municipalities of San Fernando, Valle Hermoso and Reynosa has rebounded an index of violence.
One of the most delicate cases was the armed attack on the former deputy director of the Ministry of Health of Tamaulipas, Horacio García Rojas, when he went to Reynosa to be surprised by gunmen who managed to damage the vehicle he was traveling in and fortunately so much he as his companion came out unharmed.
