Ten Young People Shot Dead in Mexico

Ten children, youths and young adults between the ages of 8 and 21 were gunned down, presumably by drug traffickers, in the northern Mexican state of Durango.

At this time, no arrests have been made.  

From CNN:

Attorney General Daniel Garcia Leal said that unknown gunmen who had set up a fake checkpoint on the road shot and even threw grenades at the victims, the state-run Notimex news agency reported.

The victims were in a pickup truck, returning to their homes after having traveled to pick up money to support their school as part of a government social program, Garcia Leal said.

The gunmen motioned the truck to stop but the victims, out of fear of being robbed or assaulted, did not comply, the attorney general said.

    Awwww, such a Shame for these Youngsters who were out doing something Good and Productive, of which I’m sure they were Proud, only to end-up in the wrong place at the wrong time. I hope they get the no-good sons of bitches who did this.
