(CNN) -- At least 13 people were fatally shot in less than 24 hours in the Mexican border city of Ciudad Juarez on Thursday, authorities said.
"They were killed in separate shootings throughout the city. We had 13 killed by 10 p.m.," said Adrian Sanchez, a municipal police spokesman.
He did not provide any other details.
The victims included a man and a woman shot outside a nightclub in a commercial district of the city.
Photos from the scene showed crime scene tape around a red Sedan with a body next to the car.
