Video Shows Gunfight at El Chapo's Safe House

A Mexican television network aired footage of the government siege that ended with the capture of drug lord Joaquin "El Chapo" Guzman, NBC News reported.

The video, which appears to be taken from a body camera of a Mexican marine participating in the assault, provides a first-hand view of the shootout with Guzman associates in the kingpin's safe house in his home state of Sinaloa.

Guzman was arrested following a chase from the house, ending his six months on the run after tunneling from a maximum security prison in July.

The video of the predawn raid appears to be footage provided by the Mexico government to Televisa's Off-Air. The report also includes a Televisa reporter interviewing one of the Marines involved in the raid as they tour the wrecked safe house. NBC News has not authenticated the video.
