Tuesday morning, 28 year old State Attorney General Investigator, Brenda Carrillo González, was attacked by gunmen outside her home.
An lead investigator with the Chihuahua state Attorney General's Office and her 4-year-old daughter were gunned down outside their house in Chihuahua city on Tuesday, Mexican officials said.
Brenda Carrillo and her daughter were leaving the house when a group of gunmen traveling in at least two vehicles opened fire on them.
Carrillo was killed instantly and the little girl died while being transported to a clinic, the AG's office said.
The investigator's husband, who is a State provided bodyguard for the Governor of Chihuahua, Cesar Duarte, was saved by being inside the home, behind closed doors.
Carrillo had a degree in psychology and was assigned to the Property crimes division of the State Attorney General Office.
One of the drug cartels that operate in Chihuahua left a message about a week ago on a street in Chihuahua city, the state capital, threatening to kill a state law enforcement agent every day because certain commanders were allegedly supporting a rival cartel.
The attacks against state law enforcement agents have not ceased since then, leaving three dead and at least five others wounded.
About 30 agents gathered Tuesday outside the AG's office to demand to that the commanders whose names appeared in the message resign.
Chihuahua, Mexico's largest state, has registered more than 8,500 registered deaths blamed on drug-related violence in the past four years.
