At Least 14 People Killed in Drug Rehab Center Shooting in Mexico

MEXICO CITY – Several armed men killed at least 14 people and wounded another eight on Tuesday night at a drug addiction rehabilitation center in Chihuahua city, Chihuahua police confirmed to EFE.

The attack reportedly took place at approximately 9:00 pm local time when the assailants, with their faces covered, entered the building and opened fire, police said.

The death toll could rise further as five men and a woman are severely wounded.

An unknown number of gunmen carried out the attack at the center “Uniendo familias, para vivir mejor” (Uniting families, for better life), located in the Rosario neighborhood in northern Mexico.

The reports also said that the assailants were carrying assault rifles and were dressed in military uniforms, and that there were more than 20 people in the center during the attack.

The injured have been transferred to different hospitals in the state capital.

State, local and federal security forces, along with military personnel, have set up check-posts in the city to track down those responsible for the attack.

The state of Chihuahua shares a border with the United States and is one of the regions in Mexico most affected by violence caused by drug cartels and other criminal groups operating there.
