A shooting incident between Army personnel and alleged drug traffickers occurred on the Chunhuhub-José María Morelos road at dawn this Sunday, after a jet that was supposedly loaded with drugs landed.

According to preliminary information, during an overflight of a helicopter of the Secretariat of National Defense (Sedena) on the Chunhuhub-José María Morelos road, near the “Ocho Venados” Ranch, it was attacked with bullets.

The troops repelled the aggression and descended on kilometer 61 of the Chunhuhub-José María Morelos highway, where a twin-engine jet with registration plates XB-RCM was on fire.

With the support of the Navy an operation was deployed in the vicinity, with two “tanks” and a helicopter, to search for the alleged drug traffickers.

The fire in the aircraft was put out. What it was carrying has not been disclosed. It is inferred that it was drugs. Circulation is still disrupted. Elements of the Army are in charge of the operation.
