Also, CJ from TX and an news emailer, Kathy, warns about the interest that the Marxofascists may have in inciting confusion and even violence, due to such stories.
At this point, it appears to me that there were significant ballistics on the Mexican side, quite near the American border and that the police were called to action, to investigate whether this meant any violent threat within the U.S.A.
