By Zoila Palma Gonzalez: On Monday, gunfire erupted in Nuevo Laredo, Mexico prompting classes to be canceled after authorities detained a cartel leader, the Associated Press reports.
The U.S. Consulate also issued an advisory telling everyone to shelter in place.
Mexican President, Andrés Manuel López Obrador said the shooting was in response to the detention of a cartel leader.
Nuevo Laredo is known to be dominated by the Northeast cartel, an offshoot of the old Zetas gang.
“There is an emergency situation in Nuevo Laredo following an arrest operation. Reports of gunfire in multiple locations in the city. Shelter in place and standby for further information,” the U.S. consulate said.
The detainee, Heriberto Rodríguez Hernández, known as “Negrolo” or “Negro 35” is believed to be part of the cartels “Troops of hell” squad of killers.
It is the second time this year that the city has been hit by cartel violence after a capo’s arrest.
