An Arizona family was gunned down in Juarez Thursday evening during a family reunion, leaving two people dead and others wounded.
Five family members were at a reunion at a home located at Rosales and Madera St. in the Colonia Anahuac when gunmen opened fire. 26-year-old Josue Reyes Castro and 36-year-old Miguel Angel Martinez Varela were taken to a clinic in northern Juarez where they later died.
Two other people, an unidentified male and a four year old girl, were also injured in the attack, but there was no word on the severity of their injuries.
Minutes after the attack, elements of the Federal Police engaged in a gunbattle with the alleged perpetrators which lead to the arrest of two men and the death of another.
Juarez police recovered 130 bullets at the crime scene. Reports said the bullets belonged to two different calibers, possibly a 9mm and a 7.52x39mm. Police also seized a white 2002 Ford Expedition with Juarez license plates, and a red 2000 Dodge Durango with Arizona license plates, and a blue 1997 Honda Accord.
