In Coahuila, near the Texas border, two United States Citizens had their vehicles stolen from them while at gunpoint.
The hold up was led by cartel operatives, who were in the middle of a violent gunfight that killed 21 people.
Colby Williams and Donald Chapman were part of a tourist group who were hunting in Coahuilabwhen a group of cartel affiliates stole their vehicles. Original reports relayed that the two American men were kidnapped, however state authorities released a statement that both of them are back in the U.S., but it still remains a question if they were abducted.
It has been confirmed that two vehicles, a 2019 Ford F-250 and a 2018 GMC Sierra, were stolen.
More from Breitbart:
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 21. 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.
It was during that turmoil when the gunmen carjacked the U.S. tourists and kidnapped several Villa Union residents. The violence is the most recent attack by Los Zetas-CDN who are terrorizing various cities in Tamaulipas, Nuevo Leon, and now Coahuila.
