CIUDAD JUAREZ, Mexico — Gunmen ambushed a police vehicle responding to an emergency call in the violent border city of Ciudad Juarez on Saturday, killing four officers and wounding two bystanders, authorities said.

The officers' vehicle was near an intersection when gunmen drove by and began shooting, said Adrian Sanchez, a public safety department spokesman. The officers died in their car.

It was unclear how many vehicles the gunmen used, and police did not release a motive for the shooting.

Sanchez said one of the two injured bystanders was a 10-year-old girl.
