Nine people in all were killed in Juarez yesterday, March 28. Five were
municipal police off duty at a party in a private home. Though the officers
have not yet been identified in El Diario, from the description of a
witness at the scene, it seems that at least 2 or 3 of the victims were
police women. Three other police were seriously injured in the attack.
Earlier in the evening, two brothers, both employed by the municipal water
department, were shot inside their home, apparently while they were eating
supper. Two other people were killed earlier in the day, including a woman
shot and killed at a public park.
On Tuesday, March 27, 4 people were murdered, including 3 men in one
multiple homicide incident.
I have not tallied the deaths for every day in March—though Diario has
reported several days without homicides, including Monday March 26. The
lastest tally in the news was on March 18 when it was reported that 57
people had been killed so far that month. I believe the total is now about
80. I will attempt a tally sometime later today. I assume there will be
more details on the police shooting forthcoming. Source articles posted
