Nine American citizens, at least six children and three women, were killed in an ambush by a Mexican cartel on Monday, November 4th.
The victims were residing in a faith-based community primarily consisting of U.S. citizens in Mexico when they were shot to death.
Mexico’s top security official, Alfonso Durazo, confirmed the six deaths and stated that six more were injured.
Mckenzie Langford, age 9, was thought to have been missing after the initial gunfire and had gone to look for help after being grazed in the arm by a stray bullet. She was thankfully found.
The family was travelling back to the U.S. in a convoy of three black SUVs when the gunmen opened fire on the travelers. Durazo stated that the gunmen mistakenly thought the convoy of SUVs was a rival gang.
President Trump stated in a series of tweets that “If Mexico needs or requests help in cleaning out these monsters, the United States stands ready, willing & able to get involved and do the job quickly and effectively.”
