Sandy was shot dead inside the bar she managed.

Chilpancingo, Guerrero.- In three hours, two acts of violence in Chilpancingo claimed the lives of three people: a 51-year-old woman, a transgender woman and a 3-year-old girl. The first incident occurred yesterday around 7:30 p.m. near the CNOP section C neighborhood, east of Chilpancingo, where a fair was installed in honor of Santiago Apostle.

According to official information, two armed assailants arrived at the place; one of them shot a woman selling chicharrones near the colony chapel. She died instantly. In that attack, the victim's granddaughter, a 3-year-old girl, died hours later in a hospital after receiving medical attention for a gunshot wound.

The armed men fled to a ravine in the colony and were persecuted by agents of the state police, but no attacker was arrested. Three hours later, in a bar located in the Vista Hermosa neighborhood east of Chilpancingo, a transgender woman was targetted, identified as [deadname] Carrillo, "La Sandy", in charge of the bar "El ParaĆ­so".

Security sources reported that armed men stormed the premises and shot directly at the bar manager who died at the scene.
