MEXICO CITY — An hours-long rolling gunbattle at a northern Mexico penitentiary left seven dead and 13 injured, authorities reported Wednesday.
Continuous automatic gunfire was heard late Tuesday at the prison in Ciudad Victoria, the capital of the border state of Tamaulipas.
The gunfire continued into the morning at the prison, which has been one of Mexico’s most troubled.
The state security spokesman’s office said three police officers and four inmates died in the shootouts, and six police and seven prisoners were wounded.
