EL PASO, Texas (Border Report) – Three men in their early 20s died and one minor was injured by gunfire in an attack outside a home in southern Juarez, police reported.
Investigators have not established a motive for the killings but said gang attacks on rivals’ homes are becoming a trend in the city across the border from El Paso, Texas.
The shooting took place late Tuesday on the corner of Toluca and Coahuila streets in the Colinas de Juarez neighborhood. Police said four men arrived at the home and shot four persons gathered outside. Three of them died at the scene.
Initial press reports from Juarez said all the victims were minors. However, a Chihuahua state police spokesman told Border Report the deceased were in their early 20s. No arrests have been made.
Multiple fatal shootings have been recorded this year in Juarez. On July 8, a municipal police officer was shot to death and his wife injured as armed men in two vehicles waited for them to return home in Downtown Juarez.
