Two violent deaths occurred in Tijuana, during the afternoon hours of Monday, June 10. In the first homicide, a woman was shot in the head and killed around 2:00pm (1400). The shooting took place on the avenida Milton Castellanos. The second homicide, which took place within an hour of the first, killed a man in the calle Palomino at colonia Cuauhtémoc.
Monday’s homicides follow a violent weekend, which saw five murders in less than 12 hours. Authorities believe the murders are all tied to drug trafficking.
Both homicides occurred within a mile of the United States border.
