Three slain in Northeast Juarez shooting

Juarez

Three people were gunned down in a shooting between rival criminal gangs in the Northeast part of Juarez on Tuesday according to Juarez Municipal Police.

Police say the suspects used two city buses to stop traffic on the road before the deadly shooting. There has been a spike in murders in that area of Juarez prompting the Mexican Army to have a permanent checkpoint to try to prevent violence. 

  At this time, there is no word on any arrests.
