It was a very deadly weekend across the border from El Paso.

Nine people were murdered in Cd. Juarez over a 72-hour period.

This, despite a sharp decline in violence so far this year.

All of the victims were men.

One of the killings happened Friday, five were on Saturday, and three on Sunday.

One victim, killed in South Juarez, was in his late 40s. His name has not yet been released.

Another man was shot and killed as he was driving his car in South Juarez.

The victim was in his early 20's and was a former used car salesman.

Juarez Police have not made any arrests.

It's unclear how many of the nine murders were connected.
