TIJUANA, Mexico Gunmen opened fire in the state attorney general's office in Tijuana today, wounding three agents, police said.
One of the state officers was in serious condition after the 1:30 a.m. attack, a news release from the Tijuana police department said.
City police said they had no further details, and the Baja California state attorney general's office declined to comment.
Drug gangs have raided police offices in the past to rescue members in custody. Some have even invaded hospitals to kill wounded rivals.
State police often interrogate suspects at the offices where the shootings occurred, but it was not clear whether any suspects were there at the time.
Tijuana is experiencing unprecedented violence as gangs fight for control of the lucrative drug route into the United States and the government cracks down on organized crime.
