Mexican Ex-Prosecutor Badly Wounded in Shooting

CHILPANCINGO, Mexico – The former attorney general of the southern Mexican state of Guerrero remains hospitalized in serious condition after being shot on Friday during an apparent attempted carjacking in Chilpancingo, the state capital.

Martha Elva Garzon Bernal was sitting in the backseat of an SUV parked alongside the state labor department when assailants smashed a window and attempted to steal the vehicle, Guerrero Coordination Group spokesman Roberto Alvarez Heredia said.

Garzon Bernal resisted and one of the assailants pulled out a handgun and shot her.

Guerrero’s incumbent attorney general, Xavier Olea Pelaez, said that Garzon Bernal was undergoing surgery to remove a bullet fragment lodged in her back.

The victim is under police guard at a private hospital in Chilpancingo.

Garzon Bernal, the only female attorney general in the state’s history, held the post for less than a year during the 2011-2014 administration of Gov. Angel Aguirre Rivero.

She resigned for personal reasons.

Her brother, former state agriculture department official Rolando Garzon Bernal, was murdered inside his Chilpancingo home in September 2016.
