In this Sept. 15, 2014 photo, a woman who did not want to give her name for fear of reprisals, shows photographs of her daughter Erika Gomez Gonzalez on the wall of her home in Arcelia, Mexico. The woman says she witnessed her 15-years-old daughter's death when army soldiers fired first at an armed group at a grain warehouse on June 30 in the Mexican town of San Pedro Limon. According to her, one man died in the initial shootout, and the rest of the gunmen surrendered on the promise they would not be hurt. She recalled that her daughter was face down in the ground with a bullet in her leg, and was rolled over while she was still alive and shot more than half a dozen times in the chest. The mother said she arrived to the warehouse the day before the shooting in an attempt to take her daughter home, but gang members wouldn't let her. (AP Photo/Eduardo Castillo)
