The ambush left one man (a civilian informant) dead, a Sheriff’s Deputy wounded, and four Zetas in custody.
So far four suspects, all believed to be Mexican, have been arrested and charged with murder.

“If it was a straight assassination, there were points in this controlled delivery where he would have just been a sitting duck,” a law-enforcement source speaking on the condition of anonymity told the Chronicle. “Pretty brazen to kill a man over 300 pounds of grass.”
