A minimum of three passengers were kidnapped at gunpoint from a passenger bus by members of the Los Zetas in the downtown area of the border city Piedras Negras, in the state of Coahuila.

The abductions transpired right in front of law enforcement buildings and so far the passengers have yet to be found.

State authorities said kidnapping occurred when a group of gunmen riding in two cars barricaded a bus full of passengers.

The scene of the event was just yards away from the headquarters of the Coahuila law enforcement communication center.

According to Vanguardia, the gunmen were driving a gray Chevrolet and a gold Dodge when they blocked the bus. They stormed inside and took three passengers off of the bus at gunpoint.

The victims were forced inside of the vehicles, and the cars immediately fled.

The commuter bus was from the Anahuac travel line and was traveling from Toluca to Acuña.

The bus driver managed to notify authorities, and a large-scale operation was launched in an effort to find the missing passengers.

Officers located a white 2007 Chevy with Texas license plates and arrested the driver.
