The Beat: Seven on Sunday

At about 8:30 p.m. last night witnesses saw two men running down the block until they got to Antimonio and Norzagaray, in Col. Zacatecas. At that point a vehicle caught up to them and fired at least four shots. One man, about 25-30 was dead, and the other was wounded. The assailants then ran over the dead man with their vehicle and fled the scene. The man he was with was taken to a hospital, wounded. (see picture at right)

Early Sunday morning assassins broke into a house with a sledge hammer and hatchet and then attacked a woman, Yolanda Dávila Meraz, 52, and her son, Pedro Pulido Dávila, 14 with these instruments as well as with guns. Both were pronounced dead.

Two men driving a black SUV were shot and killed in Col. Patria by a group of armed men. The men were security guards at a local convenience store.
