TEGUCIGALPA, Honduras (AP) - A Honduran official says gunmen attacked a family retrieving a body from a state morgue in the city of San Pedro Sula, killing seven of the dead man's relatives and two bystanders.

San Pedro Sula Forensic Medicine director Hector Hernandez says five masked, heavily armed men arrived at the morgue in two pickup trucks early Tuesday and opened fire on the family of Jose Luis Terrero, who had been slain a day earlier.

A police statement says gunmen had shot Terrero in the coastal city of Puerto Cortes. Two of Terrero's brothers were shot to death in January in San Pedro Sula.

Officials haven't given a motive for any of the attacks.

Police say Terrero was a businessmen and contractor for the Puerto Cortes city government.
