In this Sept. 15, 2014 photo, a woman who did not want to give her name for fear of reprisals, lays out the clothes of her late 15-year-old daughter Erika Gomez Gonzalez, on a bed at her home in Arcelia, Mexico. The woman says she witnessed her child's death when army soldiers fired first at an armed group at a grain warehouse on June 30 in the town of San Pedro Limon, Mexico. She said one man died in the initial shootout, when the rest of the gunmen surrendered on the promise they would not be hurt. She recalls that her daughter, who was face down in the ground with a bullet in her leg, was rolled over while she was still alive and shot more than half a dozen times in the chest. The mother said she arrived to the warehouse the day before the shooting, in an attempt to take her daughter home, but gang members wouldn't let her. (AP Photo/Eduardo Castillo)ARCELIA, Mexico (AP) — A woman says she saw Mexican soldiers shoot and kill her 15-year-old daughter after a confrontation with a suspected drug gang, even though the teenager was lying wounded on the ground.
