On Saturday January 18, 2014, at approximately 12:45 a.m., the Cochise County Sheriff’s Office was contacted by the Douglas Port of Entry regarding what sounded like a gun battle with automatic weapons and possibly hand grenades south of the United States/Mexico border. The Port of Entry advised that the sounds lasted until just after 1:00 a.m., and there were no requests for medical personnel or ambulances to respond to the port.

Information, which was received throughout the day, indicates that a gun/weapons fight did occur in Agua Prieta, Sonora, south of the US/Mexico border, where several fatalities occurred in two separate incidents. All information received indicates that this is probably cartel related with massive amounts of munitions used to include automatic weapons, 50 caliber weapons, and hand grenades. Reports of the death toll range from 8-13 people, none of whom are listed as US Citizens.

According to El Periodico, four people from Sinaloa were killed, and three people from Agua Prieta were injured.

As a proactive and precautionary measure, the Cochise County Sheriffs Office has placed personnel on a heightened state of alert, which will allow for the deployment of additional personnel and the augmentation of existing personnel should it be determined that this violence may potentially spill over into the United States via Cochise County’s international boundaries.

Sheriff Dannels said today, “Our information indicates that this is an internal fight within the confines of the country of Mexico and will most likely stay there; however, we remain vigilant in our duty to protect our citizens at all costs. If in fact there are criminal factions that intend to bring their issues to the United States, we want to assure them that we are working closely with local, state, and federal agencies to be prepared as necessary and be successful in our mission to stop any violence from occurring in our county.”
