SPOKANE, Washington (AP) -- The body of a Mexican man shot dead by police last month has been flown to Mexico and buried in the man's home village.
The Mexican Consulate in Seattle says the body of Antonio Zambrano-Montes was flown to Mexico on Thursday and buried in La Parotita in the state of Michoacan on Friday.
Consulate spokesman Pablo Mendicuti Villafan says the body of the 35-year-old orchard worker was flown first from Washington to Guadalajara, Mexico, then transported to the village by a funeral home.
Police reports say Zambrano-Montes was shot on Feb. 10 at a busy intersection in downtown Pasco after throwing rocks at passing vehicles and responding officers. The shooting was caught on videotape and sparked protests and calls for a federal investigation. Police say Zambrano-Montes wasn't carrying a weapon.
