Gunmen kill 7 in northern Mexican town
“A large group of heavily armed hit men killed seven people in three consecutive attacks in a small town in northern Mexico, officials with the Sinaloa state Public Safety Secretariat told Efe.
Based on information gathered from eyewitnesses, the assailants traveling in as many as 10 SUVs arrived at approximately 7:30 p.m. Sunday in the highland town of El Espinal, just north of the city of Mazatlan.
In an initial attack, they shot and killed four people on one street before heading to a nearby home where they murdered two others. The seventh victim was shot dead near a church, the officials said Tuesday.”
