NOGALES, Mexico -
The United States Consulate in Mexico is warning US citizens against travel to the area.
This travel alert comes after the execution-style murder of an Arizona man in the border town on Nogales near Arizona on Monday.
According to a release from the Consulate:
"Due to multiple and ongoing credible threats the Consulate cautions Americans traveling in Nogales or surrounding areas to defer unnecessary travel at this time.
Travel at night and to areas not frequented by foreigners should be avoided. U.S. Citizens are urged to take the highest precautions regarding their safety and personal security in and around Nogales."
