The raid ultimately lasted about 15 minutes and left five Chapo associates dead (and one Marine injured). The government apparently made GoPro footage culled from the helmet worn by a Marine involved in the raid available to TV network Televisa. True to form, Chapo—known for pioneering the use of tunnels in the drug trade—snuck out a secret compartment behind a mirror into a tunnel with a top deputy. They then stole a car before being captured by federal cops.
Read the heavily critised Rolling Stone-article by actor Sean Penn, who met El Chapo. A meeting that actually led the police to El Chapo’s hideout and capture.
