Almost six years after José Antonio Elena Rodríguez died in a cross-border shooting, activists condemn a US jury’s ‘inconceivable’ finding
José Antonio Elena Rodríguez was on Calle Internacional, four blocks from his home in Nogales, when 16 shots punctured the night. Ten bullets struck him, eight in the back, two in the head. He died where he fell.
The 16-year-old was not a victim of street crime. All the shots came from the United States, from the gun of a Border Patrol agent aiming through the fence which separates Arizona from Mexico.
