Protesters had fought guardsmen and obtained over a dam that’s releasing water to cover a debt to the USA under a 1944 treaty. Farmers in northern Chihuahua state say they want the water to get their crops.
National Guard Commander Luís Rodríguez Bucio explained that following guard members retreated in the dam, protesters had shot military-grade substances left behind, such as”grenades,” possibly a reference to tear-gas or smoke grenades that shield members were used to exacerbating the confrontation.
They arrested the suspects, put them aboard shield vehicles, and were carrying them into a nearby town to hand them over to civilian prosecutors.
At the stage, Rodríguez Bucio stated, trucks pushed by protesters overtook the national guard convoy carrying the 3 suspects for reserving.
Guardsmen heard shots — it was unsure from where — and also one officer opened fire, hitting on a truck carrying the girl along with her companion, who had been severely injured.
Rodríguez Bucio stated the guardsmen believed the protesters were interfering with their convoy and seeking to spare the suspects. The incident has been investigated by prosecutors and military researchers.
America provides Mexico four times more water in the Colorado River further west beneath the treaty, and Mexico is concerned about the chance of losing this.

However, a brief time after Wednesday, the National Guard said in a collection of Twitter messages which it had detained three individuals with tear gas projectiles and a gun journal Tuesday night. When guardsmen attempted to transfer the three into the town of Delicias they had been intercepted and fired from many vehicles. The soldiers returned fire and afterward discovered one dead and one injured in a motor vehicle.
The National Guard said shots were fired out of the vehicles and soldiers returned fire. A girl has been killed and a man severely injured. The girl was murdered Friday.
