Six individuals were shot to death, including four members of a family in an attack in northern Monterrey Wednesday afternoon, according to Mexican news accounts.

A story posted on the website of Milenio news daily said that armed suspects dismounted from a Ford Explorer SUV, entered a scrap metal dealership near the intersection of Avenida Camino Real and Calle Fresno in Villa San Angel at around 1345 hrs, and started shooting.

According to the report, the business was across the street from a farmers market where vendors heard about 20 shots fired.

Unofficially, the dead were identified in the news report as Alfredo Flores, 34, owner of the business, Juana Maria Villegas, 32, Jos Alfredo Flores Villegas, 15 and Osiris Michelle Flores Villegas, 8. Two other unidentified male victims were killed, and a seventh victim was wounded and taken for medical attention.

Two other individuals were murdered in ongoing drug and gang related shootings in the Monterrey metropolitan area.
  • A top Nuevo Leon state police commander was shot to death near his home in Apodaca municipality in Nuevo Leon Wednesday night. Gustavo Gerardo Garza Saucedo, commander of Nuevo Leon's Agencia Estatal de Investigaciones (AEI), was shot from sixty meters away by a sniper using a Barrett 0.50 caliber rifle at around 0200 hrs near the intersection of calles Hacienda Santa Clara and Hacienda del Rosario in Hacienda del Carmen colony. The news item speculated that a sniper was used because Hacienda del Carmen is a gated community. Garza Saucedo had been under unspecified death threats in 2012.

  • An unidentified man was found shot to death in Escobedo municipality Wednesday morning. The victim was found near the intersection of Calle Raul Salinas and El Libramiento. The news report said the victim was shot then dumped at the location.
