Reynosa, Tamaulipas, Mexico - On Friday, the Mundo Narco dot com (MN) reported that the Gulf Cartel had confirmed, that two of its leaders El Gringo and El Puma were killed during last Sunday's gunbattle in Reynosa between several factions of the same cartel. The MN also posted that according to official sources, that four vehicles with about 40 corpses were recovered.
Apparently, the GC managed to take their dead or casualties with them. Some look outs (halcones) and members of the factions headed by both El Puma and El Gringo were eliminated from Bugambilias, San Valentin and Granjas zones. Those who survived the infighting and had worked for the deceased GC leaders are now working for the new leadership that allegedly took over Reynosa.
Another leader known as El Tachas was seriously injured.

Last Sunday, El Gringo, who was one of the leaders of the Gulf Cartel in Reynosa was reported killed in a confrontation with Los Metros a faction of the Gulf Cartel. The Gulf Cartel had been feuding among family factions for months, since another leader, M4 was killed under orders of El Gringo.
The Cartel Narco dot com (CN) reported, that Mario Armando Ramirez Treviño, aka, El X-20 or El Pelón from Los Metros ordered for El Gringo to be eliminated. Treviño is now the new leader of the Gulf Cartel operating in Reynosa, according to social media postings and CN.
