Minerva was killed by an armed group who invaded her house and shot at another person there.

Chihuahua.- Consternation and indignation caused the second murder of a “trans” [person] in the city in less than a month, after “Minerva Rubio” was executed by a gang last Tuesday in a house in Colonia 3 de Mayo.

“Minerva” was identified as [deadname] Bisinais Rubio, 26, and lost her life due to a gunshot to the head.

According to initial reports, the killing took place when armed men entered and opened fire against a person who was inside a house located on calles 27th and Ninos Heroes, but it was not until yesterday morning that members of the 'trans' community from Chihuahua confirmed her death and demanded justice and the prompt investigation of the case by Prosecutor César Augusto Peniche.

The murder of 'Minerva' is the second case of the year, since last January, 'Nashly', a young woman from Aldama city, who was initially reported missing since December 16, 2018, was found lifeless and in a state of decomposition in a ditch near the entrance to the city of Aldama on Wednesday, January 23.
