It was a tragic day just miles south of the border. Young children became the casualties of believed cartel violence.

Tamaulipas officials say five students were killed during a military convoy pursuit Wednesday at around 12 p.m. on the outskirts of southern Reynosa. The suspected cartel members fled the scene near Rodolfo Trevino Castillo Middle School, running over the children who were just 12 and 13 years old.

The suspects are still at large.
