As many as 15 gunmen stormed into a house party in Juarez, Mexico, in the early hours of Sunday morning and opened fire, killing at least 13 people and injuring 13 others in one of the deadliest attacks the city has seen this year.
Witnesses said the gunmen arrived in seven cars, closing down the streets and blocking exits. They then stormed into the party and began shooting as the group was watching a soccer game, adding that windshields and windows on the cars were darkly tinted.
More than 100 AK-47 bullet casings were found around the crime scene.
The AK-47 -- known in Mexico by its slang name of "cuerno de chivos," meaning "goat's horn," in reference to the gun's banana-shaped clip -- is the weapon of choice for drug cartels.
On Friday, at least seven bullet-riddled bodies were found scattered throughout northern Juarez, according to police.
I wonder how many of those AKs came from X-Caliber Guns. I'm sure it wasn't 90%, but I wonder just how many.
What's your opinion? Things seemed a little quieter in Mexico, then more than 20 dead in one weekend.
At least 160 people have been killed in Juarez since the start of the year, according to local reports.
That's a helluva start to the New Year, don't you think?
