Two men and a woman riding in a Hummer H3 with New Mexico plates were shot and killed on a Juárez street, Chihuahua state police said Friday.
Police said gunmen fired 30 rounds in the shooting at about 6:20 p.m. Thursday in the Felipe Angeles neighborhood across the Rio Grande from the University of Texas at El Paso.
A man and a woman died in the front seat of the white Hummer while the second man fell dead in the garage of a home. Officials said the victims had not been identified but appeared to be in their 20s.
Police reported four others were killed in other cases Thursday.
By early Friday afternoon, there were four homicides, including an unidentified woman with multiple tattoos whose decomposing body was found in an abandoned home, a man who died at a hospital from multiple stab wounds and a man shot at the Edgar bar on Avenida de las Torres.
