The Mexican media outlet El Mañana has reported that at least seven people were wounded this morning during a cartel attack against a group of between “15 and 20 tourists from the United States, including American citizens and legal residents” traveling in vehicles near the border town of Los Guerra, Tamaulipas.
Of the wounded were four Americans, all identified as being over the age of 60. They reportedly received medical attention across the border in the United States.
While details still remain unclear about the shooting, other Mexican media outlets have suggested the vehicles were attacked during some sort of confrontation between two rival cartels. Tamaulipas has seen increased clashes between the Gulf and Jalisco New Generation cartels.
So far, American officials have not commented on the incident.
