Gustavo Loza returns to Naco, Sonora to direct and produce Run Coyote Run. This ‘dramedy’ has been renewed by Fox for another season on Mexican television.
Gustavo Loza, a successful television producer and director of Mexican comedies, including Los Heroes Del Norte, has created a new TV series based on families and friends living on both sides of the border in Naco Sonora and Arizona.
“It’s a dramedy that tells us about the lives of two best friends since childhood. One lives in Naco, Sonora and the other in Naco, Arizona, divided by the fence. Twenty years later they meet again and decide to start an adventure tour and travel agency which is nothing more than a business to cross migrants,” he said about the plot.
Several sources report that Border Patrol Agent Nicholas Ivie was most likely killed by a gun from a fellow agent. NBC and several sources report that “accidental gunfire from another agent who responded to the same scene, state and federal officials told NBC News on Friday. The conclusion is based on an analysis of the ballistics, the lack of evidence of other criminals in the area at the time, and other factors, the sources said.”
Two Border Patrol Agents were shot in a gun battle east of Naco, Arizona in the early morning. At approximately 1:30 AM, the agents engaged in a shoot out, during a foot patrol. One died of injuries, while the surviving agent was airlifted to Tucson. A third agent was uninjured. Border Patrol Agent Nicolas Ivie, age 30, was killed at the scene. The three agents were patrolling a trail when two were shot approximately seven miles east of Bisbee, in a region with low hills and desert terrain.
Bisbee and Naco area residents were arrested on warrants during the last 48 hours, on indictments for trafficking marijuana. Nine homes in Naco, Bisbee and Sierra Vista were raided, and several arrests were made.
KVOA leads with a lurid, hyperbolic headline: Feds take down members of a violent drug cartel. What they mean is that a bunch of juvenile delinquents have been smuggling cannabis in school backpacks. This qualifies as violence, under Arizona media guidelines.
