SAN JOSE NACAHUIL — Men firing from cars poured gunshots into three cantinas in a rural town in Guatemala, killing at least 10 people and injuring 19, local firefighters said Sunday.
Firefighters' spokesman Sergio Vasquez said the attacks occurred Saturday night in the town of San Jose Nacahuil, some 11 miles northeast of Guatemala City.
Vasquez said several children are among the wounded, apparently because they lived in the buildings housing the bars. Firefighters are often the first emergency personnel to respond to such incidents in Guatemala.
He said nobody has yet been arrested and officials are not sure of the motive for the attack in the town, which is reachable only by dirt roads that wind through mountainous terrain.
Nacahuil resident Victor Tepen said his nephew Javier Tepen, 20, went out Saturday night and never returned; he was identified as one of those killed in the attack.
