For weeks, people knew that something heavy had gone down in Nuevo Laredo. Officials in our sister city denied it all, and our authorities kept it vague. But now our suspicions are verified, to some extent.
Pro8news got a hold of the 911 calls that flooded our local system that fateful night. A lot of people on our side of the border can be heard frantically making calls to 911 after hearing explosions and gunfire nearby. I remember getting home that evening and my wife asking me if I had heard the loud boom. I hadn't, but I did notice a lot of police cars heading towards the Azteca neighborhood.
We might not have photographic, or video evidence of what transpired, but at least now we know that our minds weren't playing tricks on us.
