Lawyer shoots client to death, commits suicide inside courtroom in Mexico

Yesterday, inside a northern Mexican courtroom, a lawyer shot his client to death and then committed suicide. The names of the client and the shooter have not been released.

Prosecutors involved in the case report that an argument had erupted between the client, age 27, and his lawyer, aged 65 prior to the shootings.

This outrageous murder-suicide put those prosecutors and everyone else's safety inside that courthouse at risk.

It also proves that deadly workplace violence is an international concern and not just one that occurs in the United States.
