Cops shoot pregnant 14-year-old in the stomach

A pregnant 14-year-old U.S. citizen was allegedly intentionally shot in the stomach by Mexican police in the Mexican border town of Reynosa.

Police opened fire around midnight Sunday near the international bridge leading to Pharr, Texas, after the pick-up truck she was in failed to obey police commands to stop, the Tamaulipas state prosecutor's office said.

While both the girl and her unborn child are expected to survive, her mother said Mexican police shot her on purpose.



"She got out of the vehicle asking for help because her stomach was hurting," her mother told CBS News through a translator.

"She told them she was pregnant. Instead of helping her they shot her in the stomach."

State police officers approached the girl and a boy, who was driving the truck outside a convenience store, and ordered them to stop.

The driver took off and police fired at the truck's tires to stop the vehicle. The truck ended up in a ditch and the driver fled. The girl, four months pregnant, was found wounded in the belly and taken to a hospital.
