Border Patrol agent who shot and killed 15-year-old boy fired gun several times - El Paso Times
The Border Patrol agent who shot a 15-year-old boy near the Paso del Norte bridge Monday fired his gun several times, FBI officials said.
Earlier reports stated that the boy was 14 years old, but Chihuahua state police corrected his age Tuesday afternoon.
The agent shot at a group of Mexican nationals who had illegally crossed into the U.S. about 6:30 p.m. after they surrounded him and threw rocks at him, said Special Agent Andrea Simmons, spokeswoman for the FBI in El Paso.
Simmons said he had been with other agents but was by himself at the time of the shooting.
