This morning, President Andrés Manuel López Obrador reported that there were clashes after the capture of an alleged leader of a criminal organization, so the shootings in Nuevo Laredo were given as a “reaction” to the capture.
“Today at dawn there was a confrontation in Nuevo Laredo, a person who was the head of a criminal group was arrested and there were reactions, but that arrest has already been carried out and there are elements to show that he was responsible for other violent acts in that area,” he said without giving more details.
Cancel activities 
The U.S. Consulate General in Nuevo Laredo canceled its activities due to the insecurity.

“There is an emergency situation in Nuevo Laredo following an arrest operation. Reports of shots fired at multiple locations in the city. Shelter in place and waiting for more information,” he posted on his social networks.
