Just a few miles from the Texas border, rival drug traffickers engage one another in gunfire using.50 caliber ammunition.

Just a few miles from the U.S.-Mexico border, members of two rival Mexican drug cartels engaged in gunfire, using truck-mounted.50 caliber machine guns to assert control over a busy smuggling corridor.

The video, which was given to Fox by the Texas Department of Public Safety, depicts at least four automobiles involved in a shootout on a road close to Ciudad Miguel Aleman, a Mexican border town situated in the Rio Grande Valley right across the border from Roma, Texas. The Gulf Cartel and the Northeast Cartel were the opposing organizations, according to DPS, which also noted that at least one cartel used a thermal imaging drone to observe the carnage from above.
