Hundreds of CARTEL memebrs free El Chapo’s son in a massive shoot out straight out of NARCOS

In order to protect lives, Mexican authorities were forced to release the notorious drug lord Joaquin El Chapo Guzman’s son after heavily armed cartel gunmen launched an assault against security forces holding their alleged boss.

Ovidio Guzman was briefly arrested after federal police patrol came under fire from a house where he was holed up with three others on Thursday afternoon. Once the cartel learned the drug lord’s son had been apprehended, groups of armed criminals began attacking police all over the city with heavy firepower, blocking roads and setting vehicles on fire.

The gunmen surrounded the house where Guzman had been nabbed “with a force greater than that of the patrol,” Security Minister Alfonso Durazo said.

Mexican security forces captured and then released one of country’s most powerful drug lords Thursday after apparently being overpowered by heavily armed combatants who laid siege to the northern Mexican city of Culiacan.

Security Minister Alfonso Durazo told Reuters that officials were trying to protect lives when they decided to free Ovidio Guzman Lopez, a leader of the powerful Sinaloa cartel and the son of notorious drug boss Joaquin “El Chapo” Guzman.

Others speculated, however, that authorities may have colluded with gang members in Guzman’s release.

The cartel’s victory was a stunning humiliation for the Mexican government, which has struggled to quell growing violence across the country.
