Mexican Gunmen Fire at Border Patrol Agents
Last Update: 8:59 pm
ANZALDUAS PARK - The FBI is investigating after armed men shot at border patrol agents on the Rio Grande.
A Border Patrol Spokesperson tells CHANNEL 5 NEWS agents chased a vehicle to the river's edge near Anzalduas Park this morning.
The driver swam to Mexico leaving behind his vehicle loaded with drugs. As agents were removing over a thousand pounds of marijuana armed men in Mexico began shooting at agents patrolling on boats.
The agents returned fire several times forcing the gunmen in Mexico to flee. No injuries were reported.
Heard about this yesterday afternoon and was waiting for some more information, but Drudge has stolen my thunder in his center column. Well, they are only telling part of the story as Friday night, about 11:30PM, well before Saturday's morning's dance, some Border Patrol agents were fired upon but could not return fire as no one could tell exactly WHERE those rounds were coming from even though they DID know the fire was coming from MEXICO. No matter, as they did make up for it yesterday morning when, all boats (yes all boats- not just one as being reported) filled with Border Patrol Agents opened up with their rifles!
