The Beat Goes On: Twenty Two Yesterday

Six drug addicts were killed yesterday at 11:45 a.m. in front of a seafood restaurant as they waited to get their dose of methadone outside a rehab clinic in Col. Infonavit Ángel Trías. Young men in a red Jeep Cherokee and a red Dodge Durango, of recent vintage, opened fire on the group. One of the victims, Rosa Isela Pineda Téllez, 32, had brought her two-year old son and his father. The boy witnessed his parents' death, but he was uninjured. Then four persons were murdered in an electrical repair shop, "Gael," in Tierra Nueva, and at 10:00 p.m. three persons were murdered together Colinas del Norte as they were leaving a house, when seven vehicles arrived with assassins who began shooting.
