TIJUANA — Overnight violence left eight people dead in this Mexican border city, officials said Tuesday.

The state prosecutor's office said three teenagers, including a 14-year-old girl, were gunned down in the street; a few blocks away, officials found the bullet-riddled body of a man. In another part of the city, gunmen opened fire on a car, killing two men.

Assailants attacked another car before dawn Tuesday, injuring a police officer and killing a relative. A few hours later, the body of a man was found near City Hall, his head covered with a plastic bag.

Officials blame warring cells of the Arellano-Felix drug-trafficking gang for the wave of violence.
