Family holds vigil for teen killed by Border Patrol agent in 2010

Juarez

This weekend marks nine years since the death of Sergio Adrian Hernandez Guereca, the Mexican teenager killed by a Border Patrol agent in 2010.

His family gathered at the site where he was killed to remember the teen during a vigil.

As KTSM reported, Agent Jesus Mesa allegedly shot Guereca near the Paso del Norte bridge after he reportedly threw rocks at him from the Mexican side.

The U.S. Supreme Court is reopening the case; it’s set to be heard during the term that begins in October.

This is the second time justices will consider the dispute.
