(Reuters) – Mexican authorities on Saturday confirmed the capture of a leader of the Gulf Cartel, describing him as responsible for much of the violence in the U.S. border city of Reynosa in the northeastern state of Tamaulipas.

Jose Tiburcio Hernandez Fuentes was captured on Friday and transferred to Mexico city, despite a shootout between the Mexican army and police and around 60 of Hernandez’s gunmen who tried to rescue him.

Reports on Friday suggested authorities had detained a different leader, Jose Hugo Rodriguez Sanchez, who was arrested last year.
