Mass shooting that killed 14 in Chihuahua linked to Mexican drug cartels

More than a dozen people were shot dead on Tuesday night at a drug rehabilitation centre in northern Mexico as part of a territory fight between two criminal gangs, a spokesperson for the state attorney general’s office said.

The shooting took place in the Rosario neighbourhood of the city of Chihuahua, the capital of the border state Chihuahua, and left 14 people dead and eight injured, Carlos Huerta said on Wednesday.

“We have an ongoing preliminary investigation wherein we believe it was an attack carried out by a criminal gang fighting for drug territory in the area,” Huerta said.

The so-called Aztecas street gang attacked the rehab centre where some members of rival group Los Mexicles, associated with the powerful Sinaloa cartel, were located, Huerta said.

The two groups are wings of cartels fighting over drug distribution routes, particularly for crystal meth.

Last year, some 23,000 people were killed in violent incidents in Mexico, the

Russian mass murderer who killed nine people asks Vladimir Putin to bring back death penalty and execute him

A Russian mass murderer who gunned down nine people dramatically called for Vladimir Putin to bring back the death penalty and execute him.

Sergey Yegorov, 45, massacred five men and four women on June 4 after being taunted at a party and told he was not a “real man”.

The court heard that the father-of-one collected his Saiga semi-automatic shotgun, before boasting: “Now I’ll show you how I can shoot.”

A judge in Tver jailed him for life this week after he Yegorov admitted the mass shooting.

In court Yegorov urged relatives of his victims to forgive him, claiming he had initially intended to scare the weekend party-goers, not kill them.

7 shot dead at Texas football watch party; gunman killed, police say …

A gunman allegedly barged into his ex-wife’s home and slaughtered seven people at a Texas football watch party Sunday night – before police responded and killed the shooter.

Two other people were wounded when the unidentified gunman opened fire inside the party at a single-family home off Spring Creek Parkway in Plano, less than 20 minutes from Dallas, around 8 p.m., FOX4 reported. Witnesses said the group was watching the Dallas Cowboys season opener against the New York Giants.

“It sounded like an argument between a woman and a man and it got really loud…next thing you know all you heard was multiple rounds just going off,” Crystal Sugg, who works nearby, told FOX4.

Sugg said she heard a loud argument for about 20 minutes – and then gunshots.

“I heard guns and a lot of screaming,” she said. “All I heard was, ‘Boom, boom, boom, boom, boom.’”

Police did not

Detective: Cousins went for cheesesteaks after 4 men killed

DOYLESTOWN, Pa. (AP) — One of two cousins charged in the deaths of four men found buried on a farm told authorities he didn’t participate in the killings and said the pair went out for cheesesteaks after the killings, a detective said at a court hearing Thursday.

Sean Kratz gave conflicting narratives when pressed by authorities to recall the July killings that he described as a “massacre” and blamed the deaths on his cousin Cosmo DiNardo, said Detective Martin McDonough, who took a statement from Kratz after the slayings.

“He was methodical in the way that he presented his story,” McDonough testified as he recalled Kratz’s statement, adding that the suspect said he vomited after the first man was shot. “He initially thought that he could talk his way out of his involvement here.”

DiNardo and Kratz, both 20,
