TUCSON, Ariz. (AP) -- Mexican authorities say they're investigating the fatal shootings of seven men near the Mexico-Arizona border.

Sonora's state police say an eighth man was found wounded on a hill called Las Agujas, which is located in an area called Ejido Los Ejemplos near Sonoyta, Mexico.

Sonoyta is close to the border crossing at Lukeville, Ariz.

The Arizona Daily Star reports that the bullet-riddled bodies were found inside a pickup truck Wednesday night.

Sonoran police have not released any information about a possible motive in the attack.

All of the men are believed to have been from the state of Sinaloa and four remained unidentified Thursday.
