JUAREZ - Gunmen in Juarez shot and killed two men in a downtown mall parking lot. That's just one of a few deadly shootings in our sister city that have taken place, in the last 24 hours.

Police said the victims worked at a bakery inside the mall. When they walked out, gunmen opened fire - killing them instantly. The suspects reportedly left a note near the bodies, saying they would continue to kill other family members.

Another shooting took place around lunchtime. That one ended with the deaths of three Juarez meter maids. They were all shot in front of a local hospital, but even that couldn't save them - they all died.

Finally, as two cartels continue to battle over territory in Juarez, Mexican federal police claim to have arrested
three men believed to be working for "la linea". Police said the men were caught putting up signs, to threaten the rival Chapo Guzman cartel.
