According to the local media ‘Imagen de Veracruz’, Alexis, as the minor is called, assassin to its older brother, Luis Ernesto, in front of his mother and stepfather. The young man caused multiple injuries to the victim’s neck, which ended up causing his death.
The stepfather explained to the police that the two brothers were playing ‘Free Fire’ from a cell phone when they suddenly started arguing.
However, the authorities do not know if the discussion started because Luis Ernesto did not want to lend his brother the phone to play, or if, on the contrary, Alexis lost a game against his older brother.

Nayde, the mother of both young men, indicated that her son was unconscious in the living room of the house. She, along with her partner, held Alexis until emergency services arrived.
When the Red Cross rescuers treated Luis Ernesto, they confirmed that he no longer had a pulse. Later, the body was transferred to the Forensic Medical Service (Semefo) by personnel from the Expert Services.
On the other hand, the 17-year-old minor was turned over to the authorities and placed at the disposal of the Comprehensive Unit for the Procurement of Justice of the eighth judicial district, based in the Mexican municipality of Papantla.

It should be noted that it is not the first time that the name of ‘Free Fire’ has been involved in a crime, since at the end of October the president of Mexico, Andrés Manuel López Obrador, disclosed the case of three minors who were kidnapped through the videogame.
The president explained that two users, identified as ‘Rafael’ and ‘Miriam’, contacted the minors through ‘Free Fire’ and promised them a salary in exchange for working for organized crime.
The three minors were transferred to the city of Tlacolula, where they were detained by a criminal gang. A short time later, the Cyber Police authorities managed to find the victims through the same video game.
