CIUDAD JUAREZ, Mexico (AP) — Gunmen have killed an assistant attorney general for northern Chihuahua state and one of her bodyguards in the violent border city of Ciudad Juarez, Mexico.
Authorities reported today that the sport utility vehicle carrying Sandra Salas Garcia and two bodyguards was chased by armed assailants through the darkened Juarez streets and riddled with bullets Wednesday night.
Attorney General’s Office spokesman Arturo Sandoval says the second bodyguard was seriously wounded.
Salas was responsible for evaluating the work of prosecutors and special investigations units in Chihuahua.
Drug violence has killed more than 4,300 people in recent years in Ciudad Juarez, which is across the Rio Grande from El Paso.
