Guns of November: Fourteen Executed Yesterday

Shortly after midnight Wednesday morning six persons were executed at the Amadeus nightclub in Cd. Juarez, including a staff sergeant in the U.S. Air Force, David Booher Magallanes, assigned to Holloman AFB, who was on his day off, according to a story in the El Paso Times.

From Diario and Norte this morning:

Then at 2:50 a.m. the body of a man about 45 was found dead at Zaragoza and Independencia, with three spent 9 mm. cartridges nearby.

Then around noon four men, ages 18-24, were executed against the wall of a primary school in col. El Campanario. Click here for full Diario story. Witnesses told Diario the victims were taken out of a vehicle, lined up against the wall, and told to kneel down. One man tried to flee but was shot down about 15 meters from the others. About a hundred 7.62 X 39 spent cartridges were found nearby. The school has several hundred children and at least one class was outside doing physical education when the shooting started. Teachers screamed at them to lie down. When the shooting was over, children could see the dead bodies. One of the victims' head had been split in half by the gunfire. School was suspended for the rest of the day.

At around 4 p.m. Jacinto Montiel Navarro was shot once in the face and killed inside an auto repair shop in col. Zaragoza.

At 9 p.m. two men were killed behind Galerias Tec, a shopping center on Pedro Rosales de Leon.
