Family Files Claim for Border Agent Shooting On Car Hood

October 16, 2012  | 

The family of a woman who was fatally shot by a Border Patrol agent after she struck him with her car filed a claim to sue the agency for wrongful death.

Agent Justin Tackett, who was working undercover, was forced to use deadly force against Valeria "Munique" Tachiquin Alvarado on Sept. 28. Alvarado was leaving an apartment known for drug activity when she struck Agent Tackett with her car, carrying him on her hood while he yelled at her to stop. Agent Tackett shot her through the windshield, killing her.

The Chula Vista Police Department is continuing its investigation into the shooting, reports the San Diego Union-Tribune.

I think he should be jail because no one believe his story. He shouldn't be working if his not in right mind. He should buy what did he has a family too. But I feel sad because of children he left them with out mother.

I don't think he should what he did. What would have happen if would have killed agent Justin tackett what would they have to he. Justin Tackett did the right thing no one what really happen only Justin and the victim. Just leave him alone he has to go to court and juctices will be sever.
