2-year-old girl killed in Ciudad Obregon shootout
Violence in Sonora has claimed the life of another child.
On Sunday night, gunmen attacked a vehicle in Ciudad Obregon, killing two men in the longstanding violence hotspot in southern Sonora.
Sonoran authorities said that drug use and sales were at play in what they described as a targeted attack, and denounced the danger the young girl had been put in.
In December, a young boy was killed during an eruption of violence near the Sonoran border city of San Luis Rio Colorado.
The Sonoran Citizens Security Committee sent out a tweet demanding justice for Ingrid Miosoty's murder, and shared that in 2022, 44 minors were murdered in the state.
