– Meeting led to capture –

Gomez said the meeting was an “essential element” that led to Guzman’s capture.

On October 6, or four days after the meeting, Guzman was nearly nabbed in a military raid in the state of Durango, but troops didn’t shoot because he was with two women and a girl.

Guzman was finally captured on Friday in a raid that left five suspects dead in Los Mochis, a coastal city in the northwestern state of Sinaloa, six months after his prison break.

A video of the operation shows marines firing their assault rifles and tossing grenades inside a room. One troop comforts a wounded colleague, telling him “stay calm, buddy.”

During the shootout, Guzman escaped through a tunnel that was hidden behind a mirror. It led to the city’s storm drain system, but the drug lord and his security chief were caught later after they came out of a manhole and stole a car.
