Authorities in northern Mexico say gunmen shot up a clandestine cockfight arena in the Chihuahua state capital, killing six people and wounding 14.

The state prosecutor’s office says in a statement that several masked attackers fired at people gathered at the “Santa Maria” cockfight club late on Sunday off a highway on the southern edge of Chihuahua city.

Prosecutors said on Monday that four victims were killed at the scene and two more died while receiving medical treatment. Two children ages 7 and 10 were among the wounded. There were no immediate arrests.
