Border Patrol Agent Hurt, 2 Suspects Shot in Ariz.

April 01, 2014  | 

A U.S. Border Patrol agent working on the Tohono O'odham Indian Nation in Arizona opened fire Sunday after a U.S. citizen tried to ram him with a truck, officials said, Monday.

According to U.S. Customs and Border Protection, the incident began about 12:15 a.m., near the San Miguel Gate. The agent was standing outside his marked vehicle when the driver of the truck charged at him.

The agent opened fire, injuring two of the three people in the truck. The agent himself was injured when the truck struck his driver's side door, KVOA TV reports.

The injured tribal members were transported to a local hospital. The agent did not sustain life-threatening injuries and is on paid administrative leave, which is standard in cases where agents fire their weapons.
