2 officers are killed in a hail of bullets

These police were apparently transporting a prisoner, and were from the Mexican equivalent of the FBI. Apparently staying at a Holiday Inn Express wasn't quite as effective as the ads would lead one to believe.

MONTERREY, Mexico — Two federal police officers were shot dead Tuesday and two more were injured by gunfire in yet another attack on law enforcers in this violence-torn metropolis.
The officers met a hail of high-caliber gunfire around 10 a.m. at a gas station close to a Holiday Inn Express near the center of the city. A least 100 shell casings littered the street around the scene.

Their deaths bring to about 30 the number of officers killed in the Monterrey area this year in attacks blamed on organized crime.
