You mean this?

At least 23 people killed in Mexican border city - KFVS12 News & Weather Cape Girardeau, Carbondale, Poplar Bluff

This was about 1500 miles from Tijuana. And they seem to have been targeted as part of a war between narco gangs:

I'm well aware of the safety issues, but the dozens of websites I've perused all indicate that outside Tijuana, Baja California is quite safe. Safer than Oakland, anyway... and I used to work there. But thanks for your concern & for your kind offer!
