MEXICO CITY (AP) — The Mexican military says soldiers have chased down a convoy of 17 vehicles driven by drug cartel gunmen near a northern border city, killing three and capturing a big cache of weaponry.

Mexico’s Defense Department says the seizure includes 83 assault rifles and shotguns, five grenade launchers and more than 18,000 rounds of ammunition.

A Thursday statement says a military helicopter was fired on after it spotted the convoy near Matamoros, which is across the border from Brownsville, Texas.

The statement says that when troops pursued the convoy, the gunmen abandoned their vehicles on a dirt road and fled Wednesday. Three were detained.

Pictures show some of the seized materials marked with the letters “CDG,” the initials of the Gulf drug cartel.
