Terror filled the streets of Rio Bravo as a group of men, presumably Zetas, threw at least five grenades at two bars and one business, injuring at least three people.
Rio Bravo is across the Rio Grande from the Pharr-Donna Area.
The attack began about 2:30 p.m. Saturday when a group of men in an SUV and a passenger car drove by the two bars and lobbed three grenades at the bar La Lola in the citys East side, said a Mexican law enforcement official not authorized to speak to the media. He added that one grenade didnt explode.
Moments later, another grenade was thrown at the Apocalipsis strip club in the downtown area. The grenade caused part of the establishment to catch fire and injured three people.
Soon after, another grenade was thrown outside of a dry cleaning business, with no injuries reported.
Authorities continue to investigate the attacks and are searching for the suspects, the law enforcement official said.
A source outside law enforcement said the grenades were thrown by a group of Zetas that managed to bypass roadblocks and security checkpoints in order to enter the city.
Compliments of Eric Holder???
Thank you ATF,FBI,Eric Holder and Obama. The citizens of Mexico and the United States are greatful for you participation and leadership in ensuring that honest citizens are prevented as much as possible from obtaining fire arms but are expediting the sales to criminals at every opportunity. It must be the tea party’s fault, or george bush or sarah palin or. . .
