GUATEMALA CITY — Six armed men stormed into a home in a remote village in Guatemala's western highlands and fatally shot five people as they were eating dinner, police said Tuesday.

The national police chief, Capt. Romeo Guevara, said that four men and a woman were killed in the shooting Sunday night in the town of Chimanzana in Solola province, about 80 miles west of Guatemala City.

Two women were also wounded in the attack, which Guevara said appeared to be a result of personal differences. He said survivors recognized four of the assailants.
