NUEVO LAREDO, Tamps.- “We lived through more than three hours of terror, it was like having a war in the patio of the house because we could even hear the sound of the bullets passing by since we live two blocks from the Consulate of the United States in Nuevo Laredo, we spent our time lying on the ground”.

Without being able to sleep and with the anguish that some delinquent entered their home, it is that this family that prefers to remain anonymousexperienced the shooting that took place in Nuevo Laredo on the night of March 13 and early Monday morning, where federal authorities managed to arrest Juan Gerardo “N” (a) “El Huevo”.

“El Huevo” is the one who leads the criminal organization of the Northeast Cartel and the group of hit men Tropas del Infiernoheirs to the violent procedures of the Zetas group, generator of violence in five states of the country and in the small border region of Tamaulipas.

Juan Gerardo, was arrested in possession of two weapons for the exclusive use of the Mexican Army and Air Force and who has three arrest warrants: one in the state of Tamaulipas for extortion and criminal association, another in the state of Coahuila for intentional homicide and terrorism; and one more for extradition purposes for conspiracy for drug trafficking and money laundering.

Due to the violent acts registered in Nuevo Laredo, the citizens decided to impose curfew and avoid going out after 8:00 p.m.

“We are afraid, yesterday on social networks they said that no one should come out, that the situation was going to get ugly. Those who could stayed at home, but some who were on the street for work or for some reason, passed the fear of seeing the streets blocked, all the vehicles that were burned, although those of us who stayed at home also went through the terror of the shooting”.

That is why, says the head of the family, that messages circulate again on social networks so that families do not go out during the week, especially at night.

“We are going to impose a curfew for security, we know that in a situation like this the best thing is to be at home, not to take risks, right now the city is desolate, it is very sad to have to go through this but it is not within our reach or that of the authorities because no matter how much effort they may make, these are things that get out of hand”.
