MATÍAS ROMERO, Oaxaca.- In an alleged "hate crime", a trans woman was shot dead in the heart of this city.

Minutes after 11:00 at night, loud detonations of firearms were heard on the main avenida Hombres Ilustres, between calles Morelos and Cinco de Mayo. It is presumed that the murderers were traveling on a motorcycle, in which they fled under cover of the shadows of the night.

Neighbors reported that a person had been shot by unknown subjects. Witnesses indicated that the victim was lying on the ground in front of the "Nuestra Señora de Guadalupe" clinic. The urgent intervention of police elements was requested. When National Guard officers arrived at the scene they confirmed that the person had already died.
