Authorities are urging caution following reports of gunfire and a chase on a busy Reynosa highway.

Users of the social media network Twitter reported gunfire and heavy movement of law enforcement officials shortly after noon on Wednesday.

Reynosa city officials confirmed a "situation of risk" due to a chase around 12:21 p.m. Wednesday.

City officials said the chase started in front of the Hospital Materno Infantil off Bulevar Hidalgo and went down towards Avenida Mil Cumbres.

A large mobilization of law enforcement officials was reported in the area.

City officials asked residents to stay away from the area for their safety.

"Even though there are no reports of explosions, the situations of risk still continues on the freeway to Monterrey and Avenida Mil Cumbres," city officials wrote on Twitter. "Drive with caution."

Action 4 News will post more information as it becomes available.

There was an apparent grenade attack elsewhere.

On the San Antonio ksat news at 5pm, they said grenade attacks in Matamoros, and Reynosa..and there are currently running gun battles stretching from Nueva Laredo to Matamoros.
