AP: U.S. Marine shot, killed while visiting Mexican border city

CIUDAD JUAREZ, Mexico — A U.S. Marine who had served two tours in Iraq was shot and killed Monday in this border city after an altercation with a motorist, authorities said.

Relatives identified the Marine as Sgt. Heber Villagran, of El Paso. He was a recruiter in El Paso who had joined the Marines after graduating from high school, said his brother-in-law, Gilbert Gay.

The 23-year-old got into a heated argument with the driver of a white sport utility vehicle who pulled out a gun and shot him, said Claudia Banuelos, a spokeswoman for state investigators in Chihuahua state, which includes Juarez.

A spokeswoman with the U.S. Consulate in Ciudad Juarez, across from El Paso, Texas, confirmed a U.S. Marine had been killed Monday.

The Marine was accompanied by three other men who told authorities they were also Marines visiting Juarez for the day, Banuelos said.
