The shooting happened in the street of Puerto del Carmen and Equality, in the La Esperanza neighborhood, and near the salon where she worked.

Collectives and activists of Human Rights and of the LGBT community denounced the murder of a trans woman in the capital of Jalisco; the State Attorney's Office does not rule out that it is a transphobic hate crime, according to the organization Fuera Del Closet.
