Ojinaga – May 20, 2008 - Authorities informed us that three men were assasinated by gunshot after an encounter with those chasing them on the city streets.
The acts occurred at 12 noon, when Aarón Alonso Flores Hernández, 16 years of age, Fernando Flores Solís, 25 years of age, and Alonso Flores Solís, 38 years of age were killed by gunfire.
The last two are brothers and the first, a minor, was Alonso's son (Comment by Frontera News: incorrect – Alonso was Aaron's uncle).
It seems the three men arrived on the streets of Ojinaga from Porvenir, a town located near Juárez City.
The victims fled in the direction of El Mulato, and although chased by the city police, succeded in fleeing without being detained.
The acts occurred on Tercera Street and Hombres Ilustres, in the Magisterial Zone, where the gunfight between the two groups was seen.
The bodies were picked up immediately by Red Cross paramedics. Two died at the hospital and one died in the ambulance during transport.
The deceased lived on 36th Street and Justo Sierra, in the Porfirio Ornelas Zone, and according to neighbors, had been only arrived in Ojinaga a short while ago.
At the scene of the acts were found a pistol and a dark colored pick up truck with Texas plates and bullet impacts in its body.
Sergio Urías, valet and driver for the Isste Clinic was injured in the scuffle, presenting with a bullet wound in the neck.
He was transferred immediately to Chihuahua City aboard an Isste Ambulance to be attended in the State Capitol.La Frontera News Note: The Flores (Flores-Solis) family has lived for years in Van Horn, Texas with Alonzo fleeing to México to escape US justice (being wanted by the law in Texas) a few years back. Their parents and many relatives are still living there. Alonzo had been living in Lomas De Arena (see the Geographical Information post earlier) and had fled elsewhere for a while, reportedly to Ciudad Chihuahua, in order to avoid persecution by the cartel. He had apparently recently returned to Ojinaga thinking things had cooled off for him and his family.
