“The weapons belonged to the family, in particular to the grandfather,” declared the Prosecutor Gerardo Márquez Guevara, who also explained that one of them is for the exclusive use of the Mexican Army and the other did not have the required carrying permit, for which they were illegal.

“A search was generated in the minor’s home,” he explained in January 2020 Governor Miguel Ángel Riquelme, who recalled that the minor lived with them because he had lost his mother some years ago. “The family environment was not suitable for the child”He added.

Regarding the lack of permits for weapons, Riquelme said that they are “abnormal issues.” “Many things come from there, it was an inappropriate environment to educate a child,” he completed.

Controversy was caused by alleged messages that were recorded on the telephone number of José Ángel “N” that revealed that The man knew of the minor’s intentions to carry out a shooting at his school but did not remove his weapons from the home, this after an intervention carried out by the authorities.

The 58-year-old man would have sent messages to a person that he himself would call his daughter. In them he would have declared having had knowledge of the minor’s plans, to which the woman questions:

“Why did you give it to him dad (referring to the gun), do you see what happens?”
