MISSION — When drug runners hauling a small load of marijuana near Chimney Park & RV Resort shot at law enforcement patrolling the river, Texas Department of Public Safety Director Steve McCraw said officers responded with heavy fire to show drug cartel workers that Texas doesn’t stand for any attack on law enforcement.
