Death toll in Juarez and other parts of Mexico increases on a daily basis.

“Drug cartels in Mexico are fighting and often shoot anyone in their path — and one local family said they lost a relative because of it.

According to some reports, more than 1,000 people have been killed in Chihuahua, Mexico since the beginning of this year. Now, the violence has hit home for one Duke City family.

“My brother was the joker of the family. He was really happy all the time,” the victim’s sister, Carmen Alcantar, said.

Alcantar said her brother, Miguel, had a girlfriend and a 2-year-old daughter in Chihuahua. Despite warnings from his family, Miguel went to see them last week.

“We’ve always told him not to go down there and that he should perhaps get his family here,” Alcantar said.

“Two cars drove up beside him and there were two others with him in the vehicle. They took out their machine guns and they were masked men,” Alcantar said.
