COAHUILA, MEXICO - A fatal school shooting left two people dead in the Mexican border state of Coahuila.
Governor of Coahuila Miguel Angel Riquelmene announced it happened in Torreón, at a private elementary school where a sixth grade student opened fire against teachers and students Friday morning.
The eleven year-old student identified only as Jose took his life on school grounds after killing at least one teacher. The teacher was identified as María Medina, 50. Five other students and a teacher of physical education were taken to a hospital with minor injuries.
