42 Texas-Bound Tourists Robbed at Gunpoint by Mexican Cartel Gunmen


A passenger bus was shot at and carjacked in the border state of Coahuila while en route to McAllen, Texas

Federal police sources revealed to Breitbart Texas that the robbery took place along the highway that connects the city of Torreon with Saltillo near the community of Parras. A team of gunmen fired at the bus to force it to stop so they could rob the 42 passengers on board.

A team of 10 managed to act with complete impunity as they robbed the passengers at gunpoint taking cash, jewelry, cell phones and important documents such as passports and visas.

The group of tourists left the Mexican state of Durango and were en route to the border city of McAllen, Texas, on a shopping trip. According to El Siglo de Durango, no injuries were reported.

Federal authorities carried out a search operation to locate the gunmen but no arrests were made.
