A Mexican man who was killed while smuggling marijuana into the country
Friday has been identified as a 23-year-old from Choix, Sinaloa.
Rosario Cuberto Corrales-Vega was shot to death in the desert somewhere
between Arivaca and Amado while walking with several others carrying
marijuana in backpacks, said Deputy Dawn Barkman, a Pima County
Sheriff's Department spokeswoman.
The group was walking along when they heard someone yell "stop" in
English, she said. Gunfire followed.
Corrales-Vega was struck and a friend of his helped him over to a
roadway, where they flagged down a sport utility vehicle, Barkman said.
The driver of the SUV dropped the men off at Kino Hospital, where
Corrales-Vega was pronounced dead a short time later, she said.
The Pima County Sheriff's Department has not been able to determine
where the slaying occurred and asks that the driver of the SUV come
forward for questioning.
