Border City Massacre Leaves 10 Dead

CIUDAD JUAREZ, Mexico (September 23, 2013)--Ten people died near the northern Mexico border city of Ciudad Juarez after gunmen burst into an after-game party at a private home and opened fire.

The dead include a 7-year-old girl, her mother and three teenage boys.

A spokesman for the Chihuahua state prosecutor's office said Monday the victims were celebrating their team's victory in a local baseball game.

The motive for the shooting is unclear.

The massacre, which occurred Sunday night in Loma Blanca, a town in the Juarez Valley east of the city, was one of the biggest in the area since the 2010 killing of 15 people in an attack on a birthday party in a working-class neighborhood of Ciudad Juarez, which is across the border from El Paso.
