Leaked police body cam footage shows a recent moment in which Mexican officers were ambushed by a cartel attack.
The ambush occurred in the Mexican border state of Chihuahua. While the cartel caught the police off guard, officers were quickly able to fire back, shooting with assault rifles and using their vehicles for cover.
It's unclear which branch of the cartel staged the ambush, but these shootouts are not unusual in Mexico. More than 200,000 people have been killed or abducted since the government declared war on organized crime in 2006.
