The United States Border Patrol had their hands full on October 11, 2012. After a group of Mexicans were throwing rocks to the U.S. from across the border, the U.S. Border Patrol was forced to respond. One of the agents opened fire on the rock throwers.
The shots across the border killed one teenager and left Mexican government officials furious for the U.S. Border Patrols use of lethal force. The altercation began after the Border Patrol agent spotted a load of narcotics being abandoned.
The culprits with the narcotics ran back to Mexico after smuggling the drugs last Wednesday. Once the Border Patrol agents approached the smuggled drugs to investigate, the group of Mexicans began throwing rocks, even after being asked to stop by officials.
The Mexican government is very unhappy with the lethal force utilized by the U.S. Border Patrol. An investigation has begun to reveal more information about the events leading up to the shots fired, as well as what events followed the shooting.
