A gruesome milestone to report out of our sister city this morning.
2,000 murders have been recorded in Juarez this year.
This comes after gunmen killed several men while they were fixing their vehicle.
So far, 400 more people have been executed this year than last year. Two years ago, only 300 people were murdered there.
Meanwhile, Mexican soldiers claim they've arrested one of Juarez' worst killers.
23 year-old Roberto Manuel Gutierrez is accused of 31 murders and the extortion of 28 businesses.
