Los Zetas gunmen conducted a brazen ambush on a Police unit in Northern Mexico, killing one officer and kidnapping the rest of the squad on Sunday. As media reports surfaced Monday, officials in Tamaulipas and Nueva Leon offered conflicting versions of events.

On Sunday, State Security Officers with the Nuevo Leon State Police Civil Force pursued an SUV in a rural area close to the state‚Äôs border with Tamaulipas. As they converged on the vehicle, cartel gunmen in two seperate black SUV’s ambushed the officers.

El Proceso initially reported that an ensuing gunbattle led to one officer killed and seven others taken captive. Tamaulipas State Officals said the Police managed to locate and rescue six of the officers. However, reports of a female police officer remained unconfirmed.

Officials from the Tamaulipas government released details of the rescue of the abducted Nuevo Leon officers, but could not reveal the possible whereabouts of the remaining officer.

However, Jesus Gallo, the head of the Nuevo Leon Civil Security Forces disputed the official account of the Tamaulipas Government in a written statement late Monday. Gallo confirmed the death of the officer and another officer injured. However, Gallo claimed the remaining cops were all accounted for and unharmed.

According to Proceso quoting Nuevo Leon law enforcement officials, the Tamaulipas police force never conducted rescue operations as they claimed. The missing security officers took cover and hid in the brush until Nuevo Leon Forces arrived.

Law Enforcement officials believe that the cartel operatives fled to the border town of Nueva Ciudad Guerrero, located just south of Falcon Dam which is on the U.S side of the border.

Mexican Marines conducted a search of the city, which is a Zetas stronghold; helicopters flew over the area, in search of the suspects. Mexican officials had refused to say whether the Zetas or Gulf Cartel, were responsible for the attack. However a radio transmission was published between the commander of the Marines and the leader of th Zetas.

From Borderland: Below are the transcripts from the transmission, translated in english.

Apparently Los Zetas were transmitting on Military frequencies or vice versa
