The group was forced into the back of a pickup truck in broad daylight after being shot, according to harrowing video of the shooting. McGee and James were rushed to Brownsville, Texas, in a convoy of ambulances and SUVs escorted by Mexican military Humvees and National Guard trucks equipped with .50 caliber machine guns. Police said one of the two survivors was seriously injured, but did not say which one. McGee’s mother stated that her daughter was scheduled to have surgery on the day of the abduction.

According to the FBI, the four were “placed in a vehicle and taken from the scene by armed men” after being abducted. On Tuesday, Mexican President Andrés Manuel López Obrador announced the arrest of one person. According to CNN, local authorities will examine the bodies of Woodard and Brown before they are repatriated to the United States.

The reason for the kidnapping is unknown, but according to CNN, investigators believe the four Americans were mistaken for Haitian drug traffickers. According to US State Department spokesman Ned Price, the Biden administration wants “accountability for the violence inflicted on these Americans, which tragically resulted in the deaths of two of them.”
