An El Paso woman was hit by a stray bullet in Mexico while pushing a stroller today.
The El Paso Times reported:
El Paso Police Chief Greg Allen said the woman was a 48-year-old mother who was pushing a child in a stroller when she was shot in the upper right calf.
Allen said the round went through her leg. She was taken to University Medical Center of El Paso.
Allen, El Paso Mayor John Cook and El Paso County Sheriff Richard Wiles conducted a press conference late Tuesday afternoon at City Hall.
Allen said the woman is a Mexican citizen but has a residency card and lives in El Paso.
Allen said that the bullet came from a gunfight between carjackers and law enforcement in Juarez.
Cook said that the public should not panic over this incident and that El Paso is still a safe place to live.
