Mexican Man Claims Country’s National Guard Opened Fire On SUV Killing 2

  • A Mexican man said Monday that Mexico’s quasi-military National Guard opened fire on his SUV in the border city of Nuevo Laredo, killing his pregnant 15-year-old girlfriend and a 54-year-old friend, and wounding two other people.
  • The killings come nearly two months after an army patrol shot to death five men in cartel-dominated Nuevo Laredo on Feb. 26.
  • Four soldiers have been charged in that case, drawing more criticism for President Andrés Manuel López Obrador’s push to give the military a greater law enforcement role.
