    The facts took place on Friday evening in the municipality of Miguel Hidalgo, one of the most upscale districts of the capital. Called on the spot, the police discovered “five people on the ground with bullet holes”, according to the secretariat, in a statement. Three men died instantly, and two died of their injuries after being rushed to a hospital, the same source said. According to local media, one of the victims is a member of the “Union de Tepito”, a gang that operates in the Mexican megalopolis.

More than 300,000 people have been murdered since 2006 when Mexico deployed the military to fight cartels, with most of the killings blamed on organized crime.
    At least five people have died following Wednesday's attack. The fallout from the violent insurrection at the U.S. Capitol spans far and wide, as officials seek accountability for how the rampage, which led to at least five deaths, was allowed to happen. Extremists, egged on by Donald Trump himself, who has repeatedly and falsely claimed the election was somehow stolen from him, stormed the Capitol building on Wednesday, breaking windows, scaling walls, and ransacking congressional offices. The insurrection followed a so-called "Save America" event near the National Mall at which Trump and his allies spoke, spurring supporters on. Five people perished as a result of the mayhem.

    Former FDA Commissioner Scott Gottlieb says the U.S. may never be able to test for COVID-19 as much as China has, but improvements to the public health response must be made to control the coronavirus pandemic. Gottlieb’s comments come as the Chinese city of Qingdao announced plans to test 9 million people for the virus over a period of five days following the discovery of a dozen cases linked to a hospital treating coronavirus patients. “We don’t need to have their level of surveillance state to have better testing and tracing in place, and we could be doing a lot better at calling on collective action for people to wear masks on a more routine basis,” Gottlieb said Monday during an appearance on CNBC’s “Squawk Box.” Nearly 215,000 people have died in the U.S. from COVID-19, and more than 7.7 million have been infected. More than half of U.S. states are...

In 2011, Denise Gay, 56, was killed by a stray bullet while sitting on...
