Ovidio Guzmán, son of notorious drug lord Joaquin “El Chapo” Guzmán, has been arrested in Mexico.
The arrest took place in connection with a dramatic dawn raid in the northwestern city of Culiacán.
The incident has led to unrest in the city, reports say CNN. Footage circulating on social media reportedly shows trucks being set on fire. The airport has been closed for most of the day because of gunfire nearby.
The city’s mayor has urged residents to stay at home.
Culiacán has long been a base for the Sinaloa Cartel, where Ovidio Guzmán is said to have been a high-ranking member.
Sinaloa is one of the world’s most powerful drug cartels, and father “El Chapo” was its feared leader before he was sentenced to life in prison in 2020.
Here you can read more about the tours around “El Chapo” and his family.
