Car bomb in Mexican border town kills 3

(CNN) – A car bomb killed at least three people in Ciudad Juarez, Mexico, the city's mayor, Jose Reyes Ferriz, said Friday.

It was the first time a car bomb has been used to attack federal police, the mayor said.

"The violence is escalating," he said.

Two police officers and a paramedic died and seven people, including a local news cameraman, were injured in the blast Thursday night. A female paramedic was in grave condition, he said.

The incident happened around 8 p.m. in the city's most violent zone. Before the incident, a call to the city's emergency center reported "lots of shooting and killing," Reyes said.
