TIJUANA, Mexico, Oct. 25 (UPI) -- Police in Tijuana, Mexico, said Monday 13 people were lined up and shot to death at a drug rehabilitation center.
Armed men showed up at the center on the east side of the border city Sunday night and herded the victims into a common area where they were gunned down, investigators told The San Diego Union-Tribune.
The Baja California attorney general's office planned to issue a statement on the slayings later Monday.
The Union-Tribune said the rehab center is one of several self-help facilities in the border city, which has long been a hub of drug and people smuggling. About 40 men lived at the center, including many who said they had been deported from the United States, the newspaper said.
