Earlier in the day, the victim wrote on social media: “Time does not stop and neither do I.”

Cesar Augusto Peniche Espejel, the Chihuahua state attorney general, told news site Proceso: “One of the hypotheses we are looking at is that they were tampering with a firearm thinking that it was not loaded and accidentally shot the woman.”

It is not clear why they were filming the video with a real gun with live ammunition, or whether it was licensed.
