State Dept. Demands Review of American Citizens Attacked in Mexico


Three American citizens visiting the small Mexican town of El Sásabe, Sonora, were attacked by armed individuals in late March. The shooting landed one of the young men, Jose Rodriquez, 19, in an American hospital with two bullet wounds. American officials at the U.S. Embassy in Mexico are demanding an investigation.

This incident was revealed by Tucson-based KVOA in an investigative article by Lupita Murillo and Michale Marizco.  As a result of their investigation, the U.S. Embassy in Mexico contacted the Mexican Attorney General’s Office and insisted on a full investigation into the shootings.
