A 20-year-old man has been arrested in Mexico after allegedly shooting a woman and her father after rejecting his unsolicited proposal to be her boyfriend.
The Mexican state prosecutor’s office on Sunday announced the arrest of the suspect, who they identified only as Sebastían.
The shooter is said to have visited the home of the 20-year-old woman in Laguna de Chiconautla, a town in the Ecatepec municipality on April 30.
While he was there, Sebastían is said to have begged her to give him the opportunity to start a relationship.
Authorities say when she turned him down, he shot her.
Sebastían was held on Sunday in Ecatepec, Mexico, for murdering a 20-year-old woman and her 44-year-old father after rejecting his request to become her boyfriend.
The prosecution said the killer then walked into another room in the house and opened fire, injuring her mother and brother.
Sebastían then went to another room and murdered the woman’s 44-year-old father before fleeing the scene.
He was eventually detained in Ecatepec without incident on Sunday.
He is facing two murder charges and two additional charges of attempted murder.
Authorities did not disclose the identity of the victims and only provided the alleged shooter’s first name in accordance with the laws on the trial.
