    Gunmen invade Mexican ranch house, shoot at American law enforcement

    DONNA - Border Patrol agents and Hidalgo County Sheriff deputies are pinned down by automatic weapons fire from across the Rio Grande.

    Deputies believe Mexican gunmen stormed a ranch house on the Mexican side of the river. Two men fled the invasion by swimming across the river to the U.S. side. When deputies and agents responded to area, they came under fire.

    "Our deputies and Border Patrol agents came under fire," said Hidalgo County Sheriff Lupe Trevino. "Under automatic weapons fire from the Mexican side. Our deputies and Border Patrol agents took cover. The firing lasted three or four minutes."

    Law enforcement then came under fire from the American side of the river from what they believe were gunman chasing the escapees.

    Later on, firing would again come the Mexican side. Deputies believe gunmen from across the river were covering for members of their group which crossed into the United States.

    According to agents and deputies, no one was hurt on the American side, and they did not return fire across the river.

    The men who escaped say the gunman killed one ranch hand and kidnapped their father, but that has not been authenticated by American law enforcement.
