MATAMOROS, Tamaulipas – In a span of 48 hours, Mexican authorities and cartel gunmen clashed three times throughout Matamoros–leading to three arrests, vehicle and weapons seizures, and the death of one gunman.

On Monday, a squad of police officers were patrolling the streets of Matamoros when a team of gunmen in two vehicles tried to ambush them. The gunmen then fled the scene, setting off a high-speed chase with Tamaulipas state cops catching up with the gunmen near the Central de Abastos neighborhood.
