MEXICAN FAMILIES SHOT BY FIRING SQUAD
Gunmen in a Mexican resort have lined
up members of three families by a wall
shooting 18 dead and wounding three.
The mystery gunmen shot the 21 people
at Ensenada; 60 miles south of the US
border, their motives are unknown.
"It appears they rounded them all up,
lined them up and gunned them down,"
said Jose Espinoza of Ensenada police.

rounded up and shot before dawn in a
suburb of the resort town.
