Local News

One man believed to be a U.S. Citizen is car jacked while waiting to cross into the United States. This happened near the International Bridge in Reynosa. This death is just one example of the violence gripping Mexico, especially the northern cities along the border.

This incident comes on the heels of the U.S. State Department issuing a warning adding the Mexican State of Tamaulipas to a do not travel list.

This incident happened Monday around 6:30 p.m. on the Mexican side of the border, on El Libramiento Luis Echeverria De Reynosa.

Mexican officials from the attorney generals office of Tamaulipas say the man was surprised while waiting in the line at the international bridge by men who were looking to rob his vehicle.

The death quickly spread on social media where some said the man was a U.S. citizen. However a press release today from Tamaulipas officials say the man is a Reynosa citizen.

Reynosa was recently ranked as one of Mexico’s most dangerous cities.

Now if you are planning on traveling into Mexico there is a list of recommendations that the state department is encouraging you to follow for that full list visit:
