At the nation’s busiest port of entry Tijuana, Mexico and San Diego, California, two Americans were murdered as they waited in their car to reenter the United States.
The AP reports the victims were both carrying their U.S. passports making the identification process much easier. Their names were Kevin Romero, 28, and Sergio Salcido Luna, 25, their home cities were not disclosed.
The homicides happened in the early morning hours today near the Rio zone on the road that takes Americans back to U.S. port of entry.
Both American victims were shot in the head and authorities report that the car was riddled with bullet holes. Mexican state authorities said the Mazada B-500 pickup had California license plates and five 9 mm shell casings were recovered from the murder scene.
Mexican officials have not determined the motive for the crime; however both men still had their wallets on them ruling out robbery.
There have been no arrests made for the double murder.
Tijuana, Mexico has seen an increase in murders since the start of the new year and four days into April the sister city to San Diego has already logged in five slayings.
