Authorities said that a 10-year-old Mexican boy shot another child dead because he beat him playing a video game in the violent eastern state of Veracruz.
The boy took a gun from the family home and shot the 11-year-old victim in the head on Sunday after evolving upset at a video game rental store. The child and his family subsequently fled. On Tuesday, “All I ask is that you help me to complete justice,” the victim’s mother told reporters at his funeral. “My son died because the parents of the child who killed my son were irresponsible, leaving a gun on the table,” she added.
Veracruz is one of Mexico’s most violent conditions due to turf battles between drug traffickers. More than 340,000 people have been murdered across the Latin American country since the government deployed the military in the war on drugs in 2006.
