CIUDAD JUAREZ, Mexico —

Two sons of a well-known journalism couple have been shot to death, authorities in a northern Mexico border state said Sunday.

Alfredo David Paramo, 21, and Diego Alejandro Paramo, 23, were followed by gunmen, intercepted at an intersection and killed as they were driving home about 4 a.m. Saturday in the state capital, Chihuahua state prosecutor's spokesman Carlos Gonzalez said.

They were the sons of financial journalist David Paramo of TV Azteca and Martha Gonzalez Nicholson, who is editor of the newspaper Peso de Chihuahua.

Spokesman Gonzalez said the killings didn't appear to be connected to their parents' work as journalists. He gave no specifics on possible motives, however, saying only that the office was following "other lines of investigation."

President Enrique Pena Nieto instructed federal prosecutors to work with state authorities on the investigation and bring those responsible to justice, he said via his Twitter account.

"My deepest condolences to journalists Martha Gonzalez and David Paramo for the irreparable loss of their children," Pena Nieto said in a tweet, joining several top government officials who sent condolences to the couple, including Interior Secretary Miguel Osorio Chong.
