Mans Hits Border Patrol Agent With Rock, Agents Hit Him With Lead

Border Patrol agents shot a 19-year-old man who hit an agent with a rock and stole his ATV.

San Diego, CA – Police are investigating a shooting Sunday involving the United States Border Patrol in which the suspect hit an agent on an ATV with a rock and then fled in the agent’s ATV.

Border Patrol agents tried to stop the 19-year-old man at about 2:30 a.m. and a fight broke out, according to KSWB-TV. The Border Patrol agent was hit by the rock with enough force that it knocked him off his ATV.

After the suspect then got on the agent’s ATV and fled, two Border Patrol agents opened fire and hit the suspect at least once. The suspect crashed the ATV into a fence a short while later, KSWB reported.

The suspect was taken to a local hospital with non-life-threatening injuries, according to KSWB. No Border Patrol agents were injured.

The San Diego Police Department is handling the investigation, according to KGTV-TV.

They failed to effectively stop the illegal invader, they need more range time!

Theft + Force+Assault= Robbery, a felony in most jurisdictions.

He hit the officer, with a rock, and that's assault. The fact that he lived, says one of two things......the responding officers need to go back to the range, or they meant to just wound him.

I know Rocks hurt and cause major injuries if not Death. Lead was a good response!!
