Easter morning was filled with terror for some residents south of the border.
The Tamaulipas Attorney General's Office (PGJE) confirmed that one person is dead and six others are wounded following a series of attracks.
It all started around 4:30 a.m. Easter Sunday in the coastal towns of Tampico and Ciudad Madero.
PGJE officials reported that gunmen damaged a gas station and several other businesses.
Authorities reported that seven people were caught in the crossfire and taken to local hospitals where one of them passed away.
The identities of person killed and those wounded were not released.
No suspects have been identified or arrested but PGJE officials report that the case remains under investigation.
The attacks come at a time when both Tampico and Ciudad Madero are packed with Mexican tourists for Holy Week.
