Panic took over Villahermosa, Tabasco, after the burning of vehicles and a shooting were reported in an exclusive neighborhood, after a strong police operation.

Reports from local media suggested that it was an attack directed against the Secretary of Public Security and Citizen Protection of the government of Tabasco, Hernández Bermúdez Requena.

However, local authorities soon rejected this version, calling it unfounded. Tabasco is the home state of President Andrés Manuel López Obrador.

This was announced by Juan Carlos Castillejos, spokesperson for the government headed by Carlos Manuel Merino, through social networks.

“As the institutional spokesperson for the government of Tabasco, I want to categorically deny recent rumors about an alleged armed attack against Hernán Bermúdez. The information disseminated lacks veracity, and it is crucial to avoid the spread of fake news,” declared Castillejos.

In addition, he called on citizens to remain calm, ensuring that local authorities are committed to guaranteeing the safety of the inhabitants of Tabasco.

Later, the same Secretary of Public Security, Hernán Bermúdez Requena, came out to deny an attack against him, ensuring that he and his family were fine. However, he admitted that there was a police mobilization near his house.

Hours later, burning vehicles such as cargo trailers, cars, and trucks began to be reported in different parts of the municipality of Centro.

According to reports from the State Institute of Civil Projects, fire personnel from the Guayabal, Norte, and Planicie bases apply an emergency response protocol for vehicle fires on several roads in that state. In addition, videos and photos circulated through social networks about the burning of cars at three points on the Villahermosa-Frontera highway, one near the Carlos Pellicer area; another at the entrance to Tercer Milenio, and one more at the junction to Tamulté de las Sábanas.
