                                           In Mexico, violence does not respect ages. 
A new tragedy against minors was lived in the municipality of Empalme, Sonora  where, violently, an armed command entered a house, took a man and then set the building on fire with four people inside.

Inside the house were children, Dayron, 8 years old and Keyla, 2 , as well as their mother Perla Verónica, 31 and their uncle Christian Abel, 25, all who received second and third degree burns in the attack. The father is the man who was kidnapped.
The events occurred at 6:50 p.m. on Tuesday, in the building located on Boulevard September 16 and Calle 20, in the Libertad sector.
Opinion Sonora is now reporting that little Keyla has been stabilized with 90% burns covering her body, but her big brother Dayron has succumbed to his death in the hospital in Guaymas.

According to reports, before the fire, the gunmen detonated several firearms into the house , firing repeatedly then it was entered by a man who kidnapped the man  identified as José de Jesús, alias “El Pelón”, 23 years old, father of the children. 
They sprayed gasoline to the house and set it on fire. The small victims reported burns of 90 percent in the body , while adults had burn injuries to 60 percent of their body.
The fire was reported to emergency number 911, so elements of the fire department came, who rescued people from the house on fire. Red Cross paramedics transferred them to a hospital in Guaymas, Sonora for treatment.
Relatives and friends of the victims asked through social networks to join in prayer to recover from the unprecedented aggression that they lived through in their home.
The Executive Secretariat of the National Public Security System recorded 1,688 homicides from January to July in 2019, with June being the month with the most murders (158).
A similar situation occurred in Chihuahua on August 25, when three girls of four, 13 and 14 years of age, as well as a 25-year-old man, were killed in Ciudad Juárez . The events occurred inside the victims’ domicile, where more than 100 percussed caps were located.
The man was killed and the three minors all received bullet wounds to their heads with assault rifles.
