U.S. Federal Officers Fired On By Mexican Drug Runners From Across Border



My San Antonio:
BROWNSVILLE — A shootout on the Rio Grande between U.S. law enforcement officers and Mexican drug runners left at least three of the drug traffickers wounded, the Department of Public Safety said Thursday.
DPS spokeswoman Tela Mange said the gunfire broke out somewhere in Hidalgo County early Thursday but could not be more specific for security reasons and said she had no information on whether any of the U.S. officers were wounded.
Hidalgo County Sheriff Lupe Trevino said the shootout occurred in the Hidalgo County community of Abram and said none of the U.S. law enforcement personnel was injured.
He said the operation involved Texas Rangers, Texas Parks and Wildlife game wardens and the U.S. Border Patrol and that sheriff’s deputies were among those on the scene “after the fact.”
Mange said shootout came when officers participating in a multi-agency “Texas Ranger Reconnaissance” operation attempted to stop a large drug load from coming across the river.
