$100,000 Reward Offered

JUAREZ--- Gunmen opened fire in South Juarez, turning a house party into a massacre.
More than a dozen people are dead, most of them teens, said city leaders Sunday evening.

Chihuahua Attorney General Patricia Gonzalez told reporters the the victims were high school and college students celebrating either a soccer game victory or a birthday party.

Some of the victims were as young as 15, she said.

Investigators say as many as 20 gunmen showed up in seven different cars and began opening fire.

We're told 10 died at the scene, four died at the hospital.
14 others were hurt, and they are now being given police protection.

Mayor Jose Reyes Ferriz is now asking for the public's help finding the suspects.

A reward of roughly $100,000 is being offered for their arrests.

Ferriz urged the public call the new Crimestoppers tipline with information they may have on this massacre.

That number is 01-800-220-8477.
