Is this El Chapo?


(typing) (writing) (digital tone) (traffic) (Spanish conversation) - [Voiceover] Shit! - [Voiceover] Sam! - [Voiceover] Shit! (motorcycles) (distant yelling) (sirens) (speaking Spanish) - We have a shootout

right now on the street here in downtown Culiacn,

or near downtown Culiacn. I'm not quite sure

what happened. We have the municipal police

and the federal police. We just heard some gunshots. This is what happens

during a cartel war; at any given moment, broad

daylight, it doesn't matter, gunfire can erupt at

any possible second. You really have to be on

alert when you're in Culiacn because of the violence,

because of the drug war that's going on right

now in the United States. It's a war on people here in

Mexico, a drug war in the USA. - We're on the streets of downtown Culiacn,

Sinaloa, Mexico. It's a very quiet Thursday

night in May of 2014. This city is the

homebase of the largest and most powerful drug

organization in the world, the Sinaloa cartel. And this city was rocked

in February of 2014, when their hero, their

son, was taken down. One report has it that El

Chapo Guzmn is responsible for about 80 thousand

dead Mexicans. [Female Reporter] A senior

US law enforcement official tells us it was a

joint operation. In Mexico's biggest border

city, nobody is surprised the US played a key role in Joaqun "Chapo"

Guzmn's capture. - They had to work with Mexico, because that's only way

they gonna catch him. - They tracked him from the

Sinaloa cartel's stronghold, Culiacn, to the

resort city, Mazatlan, and surprised the

kingpin named "Shorty" as his beauty queen wife

was cooking breakfast. The DEA, Homeland

Security investigations, and US marshal service

provided critical information to pinpoint the location. We've been told by a senior

US law enforcement official who has knowledge of the joint

operation, that Mexico gave the Americans permission

to operate in the country, but also set a limited

time frame:
about a month. As the deadline was about

to expire, Mexican marines closed in on Chapo. - Tonight we're getting a new

look at where El Chapo was staying when he was caught. This is the Miramar

condos in Mazatln, you can see there's a

nice view from the rooms, but were they the

digs of a billionaire? Hardly. We checked it out on travel

websites, and condos here rent for as low as $89

during the slow season. - [Female Reporter] Across

Mexico, Chapo's capture is front-page news, and Jurez

people can hardly believe the most-wanted cartel

leader is in custody. Guzmn has waged a bloody

battle against rival cartels to control nearly every

key smuggling route. In the border city, Jurez,

alone, the death tole: 10 thousand people in the

span of about five years. - [Male Reporter] The

FBI confirms the majority of drug loads arriving from

Jurez now belong to El Chapo. Forbes magazine put Guzmn on

its annual billionaires list. - [Female Reporter] Guzmn

is accused of leading the powerful Sinaloa drug

cartel, an empire that stretches throughout North America

and reaches as far away as Europe and Australia. - [Voiceover] How does a

billionaire get caught, under the most

ordinary circumstance? A man with so much power, and

who supposedly has 200 armed guards surrounding him at all

times, how does he get caught so easily at the

Miramar condominiums? - [Charlie] I continued

my research at the University of

Texas at El Paso. I was curious if

Americans believed whether it was the

real Chapo Guzmn. - You know what, it's

really hard to tell. I mean I would like to think so. I have faith, I have
