Posted:

 Police in the Mexican border state of Tamaulipas wounded a pregnant 14-year-old U.S. citizen after the truck she was in failed to obey police commands to stop.

   The Tamaulipas state prosecutor's office says the teen and her four-month-old fetus are not in danger of dying.

   The office said Monday the shooting happened around midnight on a Reynosa street near the international bridge leading to Pharr, Texas.

   State police officers approached the girl and a boy who was driving the truck outside a convenience store, and ordered them to stop.

   The driver took off, and police fired at the truck's tires to stop the vehicle.

   When it stopped, the driver fled and the girl was found wounded in the belly, and taken to a hospital.
