The woman lost her life at the scene, the victim of a bullet to the head, while the minor managed to be transferred to a hospital, where he died from the severity of three wounds to the head, chest and left arm.
Regarding the violent events that left four minors murdered, the state government in charge of Morena has not set an official position.
