US citizens killed, kidnapped in cartel shootout in Mexico

At least six children and three women living in a community of U.S. citizens in Mexico were shot to death Monday and several others were reportedly kidnapped after their convoy came under fire during a brazen daylight ambush believed to have been carried out by gunmen affiliated with organized crime in the country.

Those attacked were members of the LeBaron family, a well-known American clan who has lived in the fundamentalist community in the northern part of the country for decades, according to The New York Times. Kenny LeBaron, a cousin to several of the victims, told the Times he feared the death toll could increase.

“When you know there are babies tied in a car seat that are burning because of some twisted evil that’s in this world,” LeBaron said, “it’s just hard to cope with that.”

More than a dozen other members of La Mora – a decades-old settlement in Sonora state founded as part of an offshoot of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints – were missing after the attack on the convoy of three SUVs, a relative told The Associated Press.

Reporting from El Diario (translated by Google Translate)

MEXICO – An attack by members of organized crime killed 12 members of the family of activist Julián LeBaron, on a highway in Sonora, on the border with the northern state of Chihuahua.

 Members of the Lebaron family confirmed the death of three women and nine children. Five other children managed to escape.

“First they found a truck with my cousin Rhonita and her four children who were burned and all shot, and there are only bones left,” said activist Julian LeBaron.

LeBarón said that these two women and their children had been deprived of liberty at first.

“Right now (Monday) we are leading a caravan of feds and soldiers to look for the children because they just confirmed that the women who were kidnapped killed them,” he said.

The social activist indicated that they had received threats of organized crime and that they had denounced him, and said he did not know what really happened in the attack on his relatives.

“We have a community in Sonora, La Morita, above the mountain range in Bavispe and on the other side of the mountain range, we are in the community of LeBarón, and because we always have our families on that side and on this side, and we have always walked on these roads, ”he added.

According to information, organized crime cut off communication in the area while the attacks occurred. And it was past 7:00 p.m. that the relatives of the victims could establish contact with the authorities.
