Gunmen killed at least 13 people this morning at a car wash in Mexico's Pacific coast state of Nayarit. The attackers pulled up in three SUVs and opened fire on the employees in Tepic, the capital of Nayarit.
As NPR’s Jason Beaubien reports, it's the third recent massacre of more than a dozen people in Mexico:
Over the weekend, 14 people were killed at a party in the border city of Juarez. Then on Sunday, 13 residents of a drug rehab program in Tijuana were gunned down.
President Felipe Calderon, speaking at a conference on security, denounced the latest shooting. He expressed his condolences to the families of the “young people” who were killed.
Calderon also denounced criminal groups who he said are murdering without pity and denying Mexicans a chance to live in peace and freedom.
