Bullets shot in Mexico reach el Paso, TX

Juárez police are engaged in a gun battle with unknown people near the U.S. border in an area near Paisano Drive on the West Side, said Border Patrol spokesman Ramiro Cordero.

He said the incident is just across the Rio Grande from the old La Hacienda Restaurant at 1720 W. Paisano.

“The Police Department is blocking off Paisano and we’re prepared and we’re going to continue being prepared, and we are going to prevent this from spilling over,” Cordero said.

Residents in the area said they heard the shots being fired from nearby, though it was unclear whether any bullets had crossed the border into El Paso.
