Americans Murdered At California Border Crossing

Written by 

Two California men who had moved to Tijuana, Mexico were murdered at a border crossing while commuting to their jobs in San Diego on Monday morning. Fox News called the killings another action in America’s Third War.

According to the Los Angeles Times, the two Americans had moved south of the border for economic reasons. Twenty-five-year-old Sergio Luna and 28-year-old Kevin Romero were believed to be on their way to jobs at West Coast Beverage Maintenance in San Diego. Matt Pelot, owner of the company, said they had followed a routine of beating morning congestion at the San Ysidro Port of Entry by arriving at the crossing before 3 a.m. The two were waiting in line about 2:40 a.m. in their pickup when an unidentified gunman walked through the lanes of traffic, tapped on their window, and opened fire with a 9-millimeter weapon (typically used by drug cartels), according to Baja California authorities. Both men were fatally wounded by gunshots to the head, chest, and arms. The shooter then fled, leaving spent cartridges and little else.
