CIUDAD JUAREZ, Mexico — Gunmen burst into a bar called "Desesperados" in the Mexican border city of Ciudad Juarez and opened fire on Sunday, killing five people and wounding nine others, authorities said.

Gunmen opened fire on the vehicle carrying Chihuahua prison director Gerardo Ortiz and his son in Chihuahua city, the state capital, located south of Ciudad Juarez.

Authorities offered no motive for the attack in the "Desesperados" — or "The Desperate Ones" — bar early Sunday. The nine wounded were listed in serious condition at hospitals in Chihuahua state, were Ciudad Juarez is located, according to state prosecutors' spokesman Fidel Banuelos.
