    Border Patrol: Agent fires shots after rock attack | US National Headlines | Comcast

    BROWNSVILLE, Texas — The U.S. Border Patrol says an agent fired shots after being pelted by rocks thrown along the Rio Grande.

    Border Patrol spokesman Henry Mendiola said Saturday he did not know if anyone was struck by the gunfire. He said the shooting about 9 a.m. in Brownsville happened when an agent "feared for his life" and fired his weapon.

    Mendiola says the investigation is still very preliminary and he could not release any more details.

    In 2010, a Border Patrol agent in El Paso shot and killed a 15-year-old Mexican boy across the Rio Grande. Investigators say the agent fired after being attacked by people throwing rocks.

    May-be with luck one of his bullets hit one of the fuck sticks:clap2::clap2:

    You're suppose to run and hide like a cowardly dog. DHS Sec. Janet said so.
