    Violence in GTO reaches minors: it has the highest number in these types of murders, but the number of accidental deaths is also strange: triple that of other states.

    Although, during his protest, Governor Diego Sinhue Rodríguez Vallejo said that the first axis of government would be security, and that his priority would be "to recover the peace and tranquility of families," Guanajuato records the worst figures in Homicides, which are also reflected in the death of children and adolescents: according to INEGI last year (the most violent in recent history) there were 153 homicides of minors. Of these, 112 lost their lives when they were between 15 and 17 years old.

    It was the case of Brayan Leonel: on August 25, in the La Brisa neighborhood, in León, there was a fight between gangs, in which the weapons came out. Three young men, two of them minors, were injured and taken to hospital. Two survived, but it was not the case of Brayan. He lost his life with only 17 years.

    The figures for this year are even worse: so far in 2019 (January-July), Guanajuato repeats as the state with the most murders of minors , an average of 12 per month; 83 cases in this period (according to the Executive Secretariat of the National Public Security System).
