Mexican Cartel-Connected Teen Shot During SWAT Raid in Texas Border City, Say Police

A gunman with cartel connections shot at various police officers in Laredo, Texas, during a raid.

Authorities were able to arrest the teen shooter and several other members of the cell–considered a “nexus” to transnational criminal organizations or drug cartels.

The raids took place this week in various homes in Laredo as part of an ongoing investigation into cartel-connected rip crews, said Laredo Police Chief Claudio Trevino during a news conference.

While police did not identify which cartel the Texas cell is affiliated with, Nuevo Laredo is a bastion of the Cartel Del Noreste (CDN) faction of Los Zetas.

Sometimes, those home invasions turn into shootouts between rival drug smugglers and rip crews.
