US-Border Activist Convicted Of Murder

The leader of an Arizona border defense group was found guilty today of murdering a 9-year old girl, Brisenia Flores, and her father, Raul Flores, during a home invasion robbery in an attempt to raise money for her organization.

Shawna Forde, founder of Minutemen American Defense, was also convicted of attempting to murder the girl’s mother.

The mother, Gina Gonzalez, testified that her husband woke her to say the police were at the door. The woman at the door identified herself and a man with her as law enforcement officers looking for fugitives, Gonzalez said.

When her husband questioned the veracity of their story, Gonzalez said the gunman opened fire, shooting her husband and Gonzalez. As Gonzalez played dead on the floor, the gunman fired two bullets into her daughter’s head, despite the little girl’s pleas.

Moments after the couple and two accomplices left, Gonzalez testified the woman returned to find her on the phone with 911 and called out to the gunman to finish her off. Gonzalez said she fled to the kitchen, armed herself and fired back when the gunman tried to kill her again.
