Border Patrol Agents Come Under Fire

From The Monitor - MISSION — U.S. Border Patrol agents here faced gunfire from south of the Rio Grande on Saturday morning. Agents patrolling the river discovered and seized more than 1,000 pounds of marijuana. A vehicle then appeared on the Mexican side and someone began firing shots at the agency’s boat unit on the river, said Border Patrol spokeswoman Rosie Huey. “The agents returned fire as they were leaving to get out of the area,” she said. No injuries were reported, and the FBI is looking into the incident.
