A bus with 42 passengers was shot at and robbed in the Mexican state of Coahuila while traveling en route to McAllen, Texas.

Breitbart Texas reported that the robbery occurred along the highway that joins the city of Torreon with Saltillo near the area of Parras. A crew of gunmen opened fire on the bus to force it to stop so they could steal from the 42 passengers on board.

A group of 10 managed to operate with complete impunity as they robbed the passengers at gunpoint taking money, jewelry, phones along with important records such as passports and visas.

The group of tourists left the Mexican state of Durango and were on their way to McAllen, Texas, on a shopping trip. El Siglo de Durango indicated that there were no reported injuries.

Federal officials conducted a search operation to find the gunmen, but no arrests have been made.
