Two People Killed In Mexico Identified

KSCB News - October 5, 2011 8:14 am

Mexican authorities are probing what led
gunmen to attack an SUV in Ciudad Juarez, across the border from El
Paso, Texas, killing four people, including two U.S. citizens from
Kansas.
The Chihuahua state attorney general’s office said Tuesday the
U.S. citizens were from El Paso. Initial reports had 19-year-old
Pablo Noe Williams and his mother, 35-year-old Rosa Williams, being
from Kansas.
A spokeswoman for the U.S. Consulate in Juarez says officials
are working to return their bodies to the U.S.
The others killed were identified as a married couple from
Mexico: 24-year-old Alberto Nieto Nieto, and 21-year-old Alma
Yesenia Flores.
Officials say the four were in the SUV Friday evening when it
was hit by gunfire.
Authorities say they recovered more than 40 assault rifle and
handgun shells at the scene.
