Some thought he’d never get caught.

But Friday members of Mexico’s navy caught drug lord Joaquin “El Chapo” Guzman in a bloody raid Friday, CNN reports.

“Mission Accomplished,” President Enrique Peña Nieto announced via Twitter. “We have him,” CNN reports.

The navy caught Guzman in an operation at about 4:30 a.m. (6:30 a.m. ET) in the coastal city of Los Mochis in Sinaloa state, a senior law enforcement official in Mexico told CNN. Several people aligned with Guzman died in the raid.
