20110617-ZeroTolerance-TNOfficers use hundreds of rounds to fight drug runners

When drug runners hauling a small load of marijuana near Chimney Park & RV Resort shot at law enforcement officers 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.

The video shown here is Texas Department of Public Safety aerial footage of the scene following the firefight in Mission on June 9. The recording shows the area after drug runners fled on foot, leaving their drug load behind.
