Mexico City Four suspects have been killed in a shootout with police in the Mexican border state of Coahuila and five civilian bystanders have been wounded.

Two of the bystanders are in serious condition, while three are listed as stable at local hospitals.

The state attorney general's office said Friday the wounded people were traveling on the highway near the city of Torreon at the time of the confrontation.

The clash occurred late Thursday in a region where drug gangs have been active. The police came under attack as they were carrying out an investigation.

The office says three pistols and an assault rifle were seized at the scene. More than 22,700 people have been killed in drug-related violence in Mexico since late 2006.
