Two U.S. citizens who traveled to Coahuila on a hunting trip had their vehicles taken at gunpoint by cartel operatives during a fierce firefight that killed [22] individuals near the border with Texas.

Donald Chapman and Colby Williams were part of a group of tourists on a hunting trip when a group of gunmen took their vehicles, Zocalo reported. While initial reports indicated the U.S. citizens were kidnapped, [a] recent announcement by state authorities revealed the two are safely in the U.S. but it remains unclear if they were ever abducted. Authorities did confirm the theft of a 2019 Ford F-250 and a 2018 GMC Sierra.

The article goes on to state the following:

The carjacking took place on Saturday morning shortly after a group of gunmen from the Cartel Del Noreste faction of Los Zetas began attacking Villa Union, Coahuila, setting off a fierce shootout that led to the deaths of [22]. The CDN-Los Zetas gunmen were riding in more than a dozen armored trucks with mounted machine guns as they attacked the town’s city hall and torched police vehicles.


The gunmen several Villa Union residents as they sought directions through the desert after the assault. According to Breitbart, Los Zetas-CDN are “terrorizing various cities in Tamaulipas, Nuevo Leon, and now Coahuila.”

On Monday, reports said that two civilians — a firefighter and a municipal engineer — were killed after they were abducted in the incident. Officials put the death toll at 22.

President Donald J. Trump suggested in an interview with former Fox News host Bill O’Reilly last week that some Mexican cartels should be designated as Foreign Terrorist Organizations (FTO), and said his administration is “in the process” of doing that.
