BROWNSVILLE, Texas — Officials say a south Texas college student has been shot and killed in Mexico.

University of Texas at Brownsville spokeswoman Amy Lynch said 19-year-old freshman Jonathan William Torres was killed Wednesday in Matamoros.

Lynch tells The Brownsville Herald that the university was trying to get more information from the U.S. Consulate in Matamoros, across the U.S.-Mexico border from Brownsville.

Officials say it is unknown whether the death was connected to ongoing drug war violence in Mexico.

It's been a right of passage for ever to spend some time in Mexico.. Now the countrys turning into a narco state.. It's sad, and i feel sorry for Mexicans who want to have a normal life down there.. The Nation is more and more being controlled by drug trafficers.. It seems that someone who is really trying to fight this winds up being killed everyday.. Mayors, Chiefs of Police..

Don't know that any of us would fare any better when it gets that far gone.. consider it, they come to you with two options.. either take a little money (or a lot depending on your worth) and live, OR .. your life and the familys life is in danger.

a man has to hold his word, hold his beliefs, and hold a good sight picture.
