AUSTIN, Texas (AP) — The family of a migrant, authorities say, were shot dead in Texas by two brothers — one of whom was the director of a detention center with a history of abuse allegations – asks for more information this week, as the two men accused of the murder were released from prison.

Jesús Iván Sepúlveda, 22, of Durango, Mexico, has been identified by family members as the man who was killed in the Hudspeth County shooting that also injured a woman. The woman remained hospitalized Wednesday in stable condition, according to a statement from the Mexican consulate.

Sepúlveda was trying to get to Austin, the capital of Texas, to reunite with his wife and two children – a 6-month-old and a 3-year-old – and hoped to earn enough money to build a house for his family in Mexico. , said his family.

“People go (to the United States) to follow a dream,” Napoleon Sepúlveda, the victim’s father, told the El Paso Times of Juare z, Mexico on Tuesday. “And they’re just out there chasing people.”

DPS said the victims were part of a group of migrants drinking water from a tank near a road when a truck with two men inside stopped. According to court documents, the group took cover to avoid being seen, but emerged when the truck backed up.

Witnesses told authorities that one of the men in the truck shouted derogatory terms and revved the engine. The driver then got out of the vehicle and fired two shots at the group.

Michael Sheppard, a former director of the West Texas Private Detention Center, which can house immigrant detainees, and his brother Mark Sheppard, both 60, were arrested and charged with manslaughter after the shooting. Both were released on bail of $250,000 each this week, according to the Hudspeth County Sheriff’s Office.

A voicemail message left Wednesday at a number belonging to Mark Sheppard was not immediately returned. No current contact information was immediately available for Michael Sheppard and it was unclear whether either had retained an attorney.

A spokesperson for the facility operator, Louisiana-based Lasalle Corrections, which operates the West Texas detention center, told the AP last week in an email that Michael Sheppard had been fired as manager “due to an off-duty incident unrelated to his job”.

The Mexican consulate said it was working with local lawyers to research possible cases of human rights abuses. Additionally, the Anti-Defamation League has been notified of the shooting.

Congressman Lloyd Doggett, a Democrat, said Michael Sheppard served as director of the West Texas Center during the period examined in a 2018 report from the University of Texas and Texas A&M Immigration Law Clinics and of the immigration advocacy group RAICES. The report cited multiple allegations of physical and verbal abuse against African migrants at the facility.

Information provided by Doggett’s office shows that the LaSalle Corrections webpage has listed Sheppard as a West Texas employee since 2015.

According to the report, the warden “was implicated in three of the inmates’ reports of verbal threats, as well as incidents of physical assault.” The director cited in the report has not been named.

Sepúlveda’s death was the first of two deadly shootings along the US-Mexico border in less than a week.

A Mexican citizen who was in police custody was fatally shot and killed Tuesday at the Ysleta Border Patrol Station in El Paso, U.S. Customs and Border Protection said in a statement. He was taken to hospital where he was pronounced dead, the FBI said.

Border Patrol said its officers were involved in the shooting, but no details were released about what preceded it. The Mexican consulate in El Paso said the deceased man was a Mexican citizen who was being processed at the station when criminal charges against him were uncovered. The FBI is investigating the shooting.
