Around midnight on Saturday January 31 2010, seven SUV’s drove into the subdivision of Salvárcar Villas in Ciduad Juarez, Chihuahua. Blocking off the street with their vehicles 15 masked gunmen were reported to have entered a suburban house where local teenagers were celebrating.
According to one account, the gunmen lead the women outside and then fired upon who ever was remaining inside with automatic weapons. Those that tried to flee were hunted down like animals. Thirteen people aged between 15 and 20 were killed on site.
Neighbours hiding in their homes dialed emergency services, but were outraged when police and the military arrived only after the gunmen had cleared. Relatives drove victims to hospitals themselves rather than wait for ambulances. Three more died later.
Although authorities made no immediate links between the teenagers and the drug gangs, hitmen have been known to attack parties searching for rivals. Police suspect that some of the teenagers had been involved in kidnappings, and there were rumours that one of the party goers had witnessed a prior gang related crime.
