Colombia Killing Spree

n BOGOTA, Colombia (x) -- At least 15 people were killed in shootings across Colombia on Wednesday night and Thursday morning, as the country's spiral of violence continued unabated.

Police said the victims included four men who gunmen dragged from a truck and shot dead before fleeing in the pre-dawn darkness near a remote town in southwest Huila province.

The victims -- a local discotheque owner, his son and two employees -- were stopped at a roadblock and each shot twice in the head in a revenge killing, the police said.
