TIJUANA, Mexico — The U.S. Consulate General Tijuana is instructing American government employees to shelter-in-place until further notice after reports of violence in parts of Baja California, officials said.
Reports of multiple vehicle fires, roadblocks and heavy police activity in Tijuana, Mexicali, Rosarito, Ensenada, and Tecate prompted the announcement via Twitter from government officials.
The U.S. Consulate General Tijuana warned the public to avoid the area and seek secure shelter. For those in the area, they should monitor local media for updates, be aware of their surroundings and notify friends and family of their safety.
Baja Beach Fest, a three-day music festival celebrating Reggaetón and Latin music, is also happening in that area of Mexico this weekend.
