Two medical staffers from the Texas Tech Medical School in El Paso were gunned down Saturday on the streets of Juarez, Mexico as they were driving in a funeral procession.
The victims were Mr. Robert Martinez and Ms. Ruth Sagredo-Velasco.
Adding to the tragedy, media reports say that Sagredo-Velasco's father was gunned down in October. More recently, her sister was also killed. It was that funeral both victims were attending this weekend when, according to media reports, their vehicle was riddled with 20 or more bullets.
It is not clear yet why the two were targeted for assassination.
* Correction Tuesday 3:43 pm. (They were medical staffers, not professors)
