Gunmen Killed 13 People at a Party in Mexico

Gunmen stormed a birthday party in Mexico, and killed thirteen people.

The gunmen killed people at a 14-year-old's birthday party who ranged in age from 13 to 32 and a dozen were wounded, according to the Washington Post.

State Attorney General Carlos Salas said that the attackers escaped the scene where 70 bullet casings were found, according to the Washington Post. Salas did not comment about the motive of the killings.

Ciudad Juárez is one of the most violent cities in the world, even after the Mexican government started cracking down on drug cartels four years ago, according to the New York Times.

Mexican President Felipe Calderón said via a Twitter message, "With sadness and profound indignation, the federal government expresses its most energetic repudiation of the murder of various young people in Ciudad Juárez," according to the New York Times.
