Three Teens, Including Two U.S. Citizens, Killed In Juarez

Juarez, Mexico – A high school principal in Texas says at least two of three teens boys shot to death in the Mexican border city Ciudad Juarez were U.S. citizens.

Chihuahua prosecutors' spokesman Arturo Sandoval said Monday that the boys were killed Saturday at a car dealership in the city across the border from El Paso, Texas.

Principal Nick Gonzalez of Cathedral High School in El Paso says 16-year-old Carlos Mario Gonzalez Bermudez was a sophomore at the school. He says another victim, 15-year-old Juan Carlos Echeverri, had been a freshman at the school last year but left to study in Ciudad Juarez.

The principal says both students were U.S. citizens.

The third teenager was identified as 17-year-old Cesar Yalin Miramontes Jimenez.
