JUAREZ, Mexico — Five Juárez police officers, including a police commander, were shot and killed at a party Wednesday night — the deadliest attack on police officers so far this year.

Officials said gunmen burst into a party and gunned down the officers about 8:15, said Juárez police spokesman Adrian Sanchez Contreras.

Two other officers were wounded and were listed in serious condition, officials said late Wednesday.
