Mexico City — Employees of a Mexico City cinema where a 10-year-old boy died from being hit in the head by a bullet fired from outside the building have found 16 spent bullets on the roof on different dates, prosecutors said on Wednesday.

A statement said an employee turned in the 16 bullets and told investigators it was common to find spent bullets and bullet holes on the roof around holidays.

The employee told police that on the day the child was shot his manager told him to check the roof, prosecutors said. The statement didn't say what the employee found.

A ballistics expert said on Tuesday that the boy was hit by a 9mm bullet and that a second 9mm bullet was found on the cinema's roof. Authorities were still trying to determine if both bullets were fired by the same weapon.
