MEXICO CITY (AP) - Police say at least 80 gunmen terrorized a town in northern Mexico for several hours and killed four people.
Sonora state attorney general Abel Murrieta says the assailants arrived in the town of Maycoba in at least 15 pickup trucks, opened fire on the state police headquarters and set it ablaze.
Murrieta said Friday the assailants terrorized the town for at least five hours Thursday afternoon. He said the gunmen are members of organized crime but gave no other details.
In the central state of Morelos, police found the bodies of two men hanging from a bridge in the city of Cuernavaca.
Cuernavaca police say in a statement the bodies were found Friday along with a message that claims federal authorities are protecting an alleged drug kingpin.
