Cartel gunmen in Reynosa, Mexico pulled an unknown man out of a tire shop, shot him in the street, and then ditched his body in the bed of a pickup truck in broad daylight before fleeing the scene.

A series of leaked pictures obtained by Breitbart Texas caught the moment when a team of Gulf Cartel members pulled up to a tire shop in the Juarez colony while carrying assault rifles and handguns.

The crew dragged out an unknown man toward the truck, and a man used a machine gun to shoot the victim in the head and body

Images show the moment cartel gunmen throw the body in the bed of a pickup before fleeing.

The execution took place in the strife-ridden city of Reynosa

Another photo captured the moment when the men tossed the body in the bed of the pickup before leaving.

The brazen execution is the most recent example in the continuing battle for control of the city between two factions of the Gulf Cartel. Rival factions are engulfed in a raging war that has led to 36 deaths, including an officer and an innocent bystander.

The ongoing fight has resulted in an increase in petty crime as cartel associates hold up businesses and carry out highway robberies targeting tourists returning from Texas.
