Texas Mother and infant shot by Mexican Soldiers

Lucio R. Borderland Beat-republished from KRGV (follow link for news video)


Saida De La Torre said she hopes the Mexican soldiers who wounded her and her daughter will be held responsible. She said the Mexican government promised to help fix her bullet-riddled SUV. De La Torre hopes they keep their word.

Both mother and daughter were hit by flying bullets. De La Torre said the incident happened when she was visiting family in Camargo, Mexico.

“I was going to pick up my oldest daughter and was on the road, when we heard gun shots,” De La Torre said. “I told my cousin that we needed to go back to my parent's house, because it looked like something was going down. When I made a turn, I saw a vehicle with soldiers traveling really fast.”

De La Torre said she saw a black vehicle speeding by. It looked similar to her Dodge Nitro. She pulled over until the road was clear, and then she headed back to her parents’ home.

Out of nowhere, soldiers reappeared. They were right behind De La Torre.

“Everything seemed to be normal while I was driving back, but then I heard gun shots again,” De La Torre said. 


“They sounded a lot closer. I began to realize the soldiers were following me. I thought they were following the truck that I had seen speeding,” she said. “I think they got confused and thought my truck was the one they were first chasing. They started firing at us.”
De La Torre rushed to her parents’ home.

“I got to the house,” De La Torre said. “I got off the truck and ran toward my father who was outside. I screamed to him that they were shooting at us. The soldiers pulled up and parked right behind my truck,” she said. “They got off with their weapons drawn. My father spoke out and questioned their motives.”

At the time, De La Torre said she checked on her daughter and cousin. She saw that her baby girl had been shot in the back.

Fragments of the bullets hit me on the face, my hands and my legs, that's it.” De La Torre said. “My little girl did get hit with a bullet. I didn't realize it until I got to the house, and I went to get her out of the truck. That's when I saw she was wounded.”

De La Torre’s father pleaded with the officers. He told them that they needed to get the child to the hospital.

The soldier’s checked De La Torre’s vehicle. De La Torre guessed they were looking for drugs or anything illegal. They didn’t find anything.

One of the soldiers said it was time to go. De La Torre said they left with smiles on their faces.

De La Torre filed a report with local authorities. They told her they found the suspects they were initially chasing.

“They came to me and offered their apologies,” De La Torre said. “I could tell that they meant what they said. They treated us well during this whole process.”

De La Torre’s daughter underwent surgery and was released from a San Antonio hospital on Monday. She said hospital officials are concerned for the child’s well-being. They have to return for a checkup on Friday and in the weeks ahead.


The Mexican army told CHANNEL 5 NEWS they are investigating this case. De La Torre said they promised to repair her truck or help her buy a new one. She said she hopes they come through with their promise.

  2. Banana republic. In USA they wouldn't even engage a car speeding too fast let alone have a shootout on an open highway.

    5. There are police officers that are former military or both at the same time, but the militarized poolice forces in the US use too much force as a rule, do not give a damn, are too prepotent without need, but as a provoking proposition...
      --Timothy McVeigh was no poolice officer, he was just a bemedaled soldier, and what intrigues me the most is the unsolved problem of:
      WHY SO MANY SOLDIERS AND FORMER SERVICE MEMBERS COMMIT SUICIDE?
      ...I have not checked but I have some suspicions...hopelessness, fraud, abandonment...others take their frustrations on other people...

    2. 9:53 but the US pays for their "trainin' and weapons", one thousand dollars worth of training per cop, sailor, soldier...Mexico applies one thousand pesos to the trainin' and steals the rest for the cooperation from the pinchis gringos güeyes...

    3. 1:23 you can train a monkey to do the same job as these soldiers but it doesn't mean they will make the correct decisions. Just like these yahoos shooting at a mother and child. If a man has hate and discontent in his heart it really doesn't matter how much training he has. He will spread that hate along with the destruction he brings along with it.

  5. This is sad but unfortunately shit like this can and will happen in any conflict! I know some will automatically blame everything on the government and or soldiers relentlessly but you have to remember that sometimes these soldiers at young and scared of these well armed narcos themselves just as any soldier is in any conflict. I'm not entirely defending the soldiers actions or inactions but there is always two sides to any story. Lets not loose sight of these facts because of the simple fact that this woman is from Texas!

    1. I agree. These types of situations are unfortunate but you have to continue to support the soldiers. If she heard gunshots and felt something was happening, and saw a vehicle that looked similar to hers speeding away, the worst thing she could have done then was take off like a bat out of hell going anywhere. And what do ya know, soldiers saw this vehicle and went after it and now there are injuries. They will pay her to satisfy her and continue on.
      If all the soldiers were corrupt nobody would be getting caught and fucked up. Look at all the captures. If anything it shows you can count on the Mexican Military to catch these assholes but you cant count on the government institutions to follow behind and do their jobs...VIVA LA MARINA!!!

    2. @10:4 Fack you estupido...
      --if you are scared it is no excuse to just shoot anything that moves, if the soldier facks up, it goes to his superior officer, don't tell me officers do not have the huevos nor the discipline, even if it were so, it is no excuse...

    3. @1:29 Fuck You ignorant peasant You've probably only heard gunshots in movies and believe the army always has everything under control when at war like Chuck Norris or something! Officers in any army can be just as punks as you sitting behind the computer badmouthing anything you don't agree on!

    4. If the mexican army or any army can not have themselves under control, they are no fackin' army, they are a bunch of marranos en cuatropatas, come think of it, there were no "Dodge Nitros" at MyLai in vietnam, what was the confusion?

  8. Thanks for posting the link...my family is from Miguel Aleman and Camargo. I've been playing with the idea of visiting, since my family members always travel there. After reading this news report I second guess my decision. Not because I'm afraid for myself, but my family. Thanks again and for all those traveling these holidays to your home towns, stay safe and God bless. Hope for a fast recovery for the baby.

  10. What a nightmare. Yet again innocents are victims. Can't you guys show some compassion for a baby being shot? It's unnecessary to say F**K this lady. I do agree that it's probably safer to stay away from the border towns. But,what about the innocents who live there and are victims daily? It's a sad day when even one person is such a cynical cruel person without an ounce of sympathy. Fortunately there are more loving and caring people in Mexico than insensitive jerks. God bless all the innocents in Mexico. And,my prayers are with the familia of the baby. Grazie BB for your continuous coverage! Almost daily on facebook a friend usually in another country is educated by my liking your posts. This is a global issue and knowledge is power. Hope all is well with your health Chivas. God speed.

  11. I pass through Camargo and Jimenez quite often. These Pueblos are beautiful and look like a place one would want to retire to and spend there whole life there. But they are infested with criminals, narco's, police and soldiers that are corrupt and care nothing about their own citizens. When she said they were smiling I believe it. It is like they are from a different planet and have no care at all about even a woman or baby. They are themselves criminals with authority to kill and rob at will. These cops do not survive on their paychecks. It is through crime period. That is through all of Mexico. I fear the police and military more than I do the criminals here. I have to stop for the police and you never know what will happen. I hide my money when I travel so the Feds or soldiers do not find it and take it. They love to rob people and they do it in plain view. there is nothing you can do, and no one will help you if you complain.

    3. There are only two hopes for Mexico. One is the government collapses or is overthrown and some one like Chapo takes control. The second is the US invades. There is no happy easy solution to the problems Mexico has and has had for the last 200 years.

    4. 3:44, 5:45, 2:49, this is what happens when you write with a bias, The Mother said there way a similar truck that flew by her... Shit happens everyday with other countries...Shit happens...

  16. Quejas do nothing to make you safer. Commentaraios no vale nada. New cars have black windows. just look and see. ¿OK now what?

    A person has to think. Hear shots near. Pull over get of the car everyone and take cover. If a car is seen speeding, it may be sicarios. If the car look like your car. Do not move. Luego go home slow with windows down so people can see inside.

    I have not read anyone ones idea to make illegal new cars with black windows. Los retenes y puesto de controles make the chofer take off window tintos. This is loco. Old cars are hated by sicarios y jefes. But new cars have black windows.

    I do not comprendo this. Gobernacion has brains like a chango.
