Another Soldier Also Murdered
Another El Paso resident has been killed across the border in Juarez, amongst other attacks this weekend.
Sources tell NewsChannel 9 Maribel Samaniego was killed Saturday as she was driving her truck and was approached by a group of men.
The group made her drive out to a deserted area, then killed her.
Meanwhile, two Mexican soldiers and a police officer were also attacked Saturday night in eastern Juarez.
One soldier died at the scene.
The other two were taken to the hospital in critical condition.
This is the second attack on the military in less than 24 hours.
As NewsChannel 9 reported Saturday, a captain with the Mexican army was shot and killed Friday night inside a bowling alley.
Alejandro Aranda was gunned down right in front of customers.
More than 200 people have been murdered in Juarez this month alone.
