Mexican Police Apprehend Six In Killing of U.S. Border Agent
July 27, 2009
Mexican law enforcement working with the FBI apprehended six alleged smugglers who may be tied to the killing of U.S. Border Patrol Agent Robert Rosas, the San Diego News Network reports.
Ernesto Parra Valenzuela, 36, was identified as the shooter and remains in federal custody in Mexico.
Rosas, 30, was shot with a 9mm pistol while tracking the group of alleged coyotes. He became the first border agent killed in a shooting while on duty in a decade.
