Gunmen kill 13 at birthday party in Mexico

Any time the Cartel does this, their is a reason.

It may not have been the Birthday boy, but it could have been his Father or his Uncle,even his little brother maybe just a friend that was their.

The Cartels do not care who they kill when they are trying to off their target.

(Reuters) - Gunmen sprayed bullets into a family birthday party in the violent Mexican border city of Ciudad Juarez, killing 13 people and wounding 20, authorities said on Saturday.

It was the second massacre at a party this month in Ciudad Juarez, which borders El Paso, Texas, and is one of the world's most violent cities as drug cartels battle security forces and each other over smuggling routes into the United States.

"I threw myself down on the floor and then a lot of other people piled on top of me," a young man who survived the shooting late on Friday told Reuters, declining to give his name out of fear of reprisals.

The celebration was for a boy's 15th birthday, he said.

At least four of the people killed at the house party were teenagers and a 9-year-old boy was among the wounded, officials said.

"A group of heavily armed men arrived in two minivans. At least 10 men burst into the party," Carlos Gonzalez, a spokesman for state prosecutors, told the Reforma newspaper.

It was not clear whether the shooting was related to Mexico's drug war, which has killed more than 6,900 people in Ciudad Juarez alone since early 2008.

It is an Unfortunate fact that the teenagers of Mexico are usually hooked up with the "AA" Artist Assassins, They get paid to kill for the cartel.
