Authorities are on heightened alert after receiving information about a potential outbreak of violence in Reynosa, Mexico.
The Hidalgo County Sheriff, Lupe Trevino, said he received information, from an official intelligence source, that the Mexican army surrounded a school and several SUV's carrying cartel members had entered the Mexican city earlier in the day.
Although the county is prepared, no Mexican official released information about the potential violence outbreak in Reynosa.
