Ciudad Juarez, Chih - Two men were killed in a shooting Monday afternoon at a neighborhood grocery store in east Juárez, a Chihuahua state attorney general's office spokesman said.
Shortly after noon, Alejandro Menchaca Reyes, 32, was killed inside El Caporal No. 1 grocery while Jorge Alberto Terrazas Rodriguez, 28, died on a sidewalk outside the store in the Tecnologico area of the city, officials said.
Officials said investigators counted 13 (40 mm) bullet casings at the scene. Some news media reported the store-owner may have been killed for refusing to pay an extortion "quota," but authorities would not confirm a motive.
Also on Monday, Carlos Raul Gonzalez Gomez, 21, died at a Juárez hospital from gunshot wounds, officials said.
In the village of Guadalupe, Rodolfo Hernandez Garay, 28, was slain in a shooting where 30 rounds were fired from an AK-47, officials said.
