Feds Looking for Leads in Juarez Killings
El Paso - About 200 U.S. law enforcement agents are rounding up suspected members of the Barrio Azteca gang in El Paso to generate leads in the investigation of the killings of three people with ties to the U.S. consulate in Juarez.
The FBI says "Operation Knock Down" began early this morning and will likely continue throughout the day.
U.S. consulate employee Lesley Enriquez and her husband, Arthur Redelfs, were killed Saturday in Juarez when gunmen opened fire on their sport utility vehicle after they left a birthday party.
Jorge Alberto Salcido, husband of a Mexican employee of the consulate, also was killed by gunmen after leaving the same event in a separate vehicle.
