But that day, the precautions weren't enough.

Mexican authorities have announced that one man who may have been involved in the killings has been taken into custody.

Nearby were the bodies of the Miller family, including eight-month-old twins Titus and Tiana.

Christina Langford Johnson reportedly got out of the vehicle with her hands raised to ask the attackers to stop shooting.

Devin, his brother Jake and 7-month-old Faith Marie Johnson - who was found in a auto seat that her now-deceased mother Christina Marie Langford Johnson put on the floor in a heroic act to protect her - remained in the care of their aunts and grandmas in LaMora, according to Miller.

Dawna Ray Langford, 43, and her two children, 11-year-old Trevor Harvey Langford and 2-year-old Rogan Jay Langford, were all shot to death. Under the circumstances, I think they are being champs."A 7-month-old girl, Faith Johnson, was also among the survivors.Her mother, 29-year-old Christina Langford Johnson was killed in the attack.Miller said the baby was found in her vehicle seat, uninjured.She is now back in La Mora with her grandmother".

A Republican-controlled Senate is unlikely to approve anything approaching Medicare for All. The differences between the candidates have led to clashes in recent presidential debates.

A 13-year-old boy helped six of his siblings survive the attack on Mormons in Mexico by hiding them in a bush and walking for six hours to find help back in his hometown, 14 miles away. Before setting away, Miller stated Devin needed to hide his injured siblings from the bushes, covering them with branches.

After seeing his mother and two brothers die, Devin walked about 14 miles to La Mora and relayed the "first news anyone had heard" of the attack, Miller said.

The carnage was so horrific, family members didn't recognize the remains of nine relatives. The messages reveal confusion among participants about which children had returned to the enclave, but one fact was clear: The family was in trouble. "The group of males waited some time for reinforcements, and round 7:30, discovered the hidden youngsters". McKenzie Langford, 9, also went to look for help after Devin left and did not come back. His 9-year-old sister, Mckenzie, who was shot in the arm, took off after her brother and was later found lost and wandering in the desert by search parties, according to a relative's Facebook post.

Born and raised in La Mora, he said he had been planning to move back permanently from the United States but could not focus on that now due to feelings of shock and sadness.

Members of the Mexican Air Force transferring five members of the Miller family after being injured during an ambush. They were all airlifted to a hospital in Arizona for treatment.

The harrowing account was given by members of three Mexican-American Mormon families that suffered a brutal attack by suspected drug cartel hitmen on Monday which claimed the lives of three women and six children and sparked outrage and condemnation in the United States. Though they were physically unscathed, their families have been irreparably wounded. "We're taught from a young age to - the most - the best thing you can do in your life is to give your life for someone else, and if we ever have an opportunity to help somebody, we do".
