BROWNSVILLE — U.S. law enforcement officers exchanged gunfire early Thursday with Mexican drug runners on the Rio Grande, wounding at least three of the drug traffickers, according to the Department of Public Safety.
DPS spokeswoman Tela Mange said the shootout occurred when officers participating in a multiagency
“Texas Ranger Reconnaissance” operation attempted to stop a large drug load from coming across the river.
Officers arrived in three patrol boats after spotting a suspicious vehicle on the U.S. bank of the river and two boats full of drugs on the water, and “received heavy gunfire from the Mexico side” while attempting to interdict the boats, she said.
