The Mexican government will take legal action against the US after six Mexican nationals were killed in the shooting in El Paso, the country’s foreign secretary Marcelo Ebrard announced on Sunday.
Ebrard did not specify exactly what the legal action will be, but said that more details would be announced at 5:30 p.m. ET.
In a video on his Twitter account, Ebrard called what happened in El Paso “unacceptable.”
“Mexico would like to express its utmost, profound condemnation and rejection of this barbaric act,” he said.
Six Mexicans were killed and seven are injured after the shooting, according to Mexican President Andrés Manuel López Obrador.
