Even for Mexicans accustomed to ghastly headlines chronicling the country's drug-related violence, the current level of killing in Tijuana causes consternation. Some 200 people have been slain in one month. Last weekend turned into one of the city's deadliest: nearly 40 were killed, four of whom were children, and nine of them beheaded.
The California Highway Patrol posted on Facebook that it was called upon to help in the search for an attempted murder and arson suspect in the City of Vacaville. During the search, an officer was involved in a shooting with the subject, who then reportedly stabbed a K-9 with the Fairfield (CA) Police Department.
