Shots Fired Near Border Patrol Check Point
A Border Patrol agent opened fire during a scuffle that occurred just south of the Border Patrol checkpoint near Falfurrias Wednesday morning. An agency spokesman says the skirmish broke out during an encounter with a group of immigrants near Encino, and that during the struggle, the agent pulled his service weapon and fired. No one was hurt, although the agent and the other person sustained minor injuries in the fight. Authorities aren't saying how the scuffle broke out.
