Border Patrol Agent Back on Duty - Holder Investigates

From the El Paso Times - The U.S. Border Patrol agent who allegedly shot across the Rio Grande into Mexico, killing a 15-year-old Mexican boy, has been on regular duty for the past two months, officials said this week. The 31-year-old agent, whose name was withheld by the government, has been with the border patrol for seven years. Michael Przybyl, assistant chief patrol agent for the U.S. Border Patrol, El Paso Sector, said the agent was placed on administrative duty for a couple days after the June 7 shooting before returning to patrol. Killed in the shooting was Mexican citizen Sergio Adrían Hernández Güereca.
