A plainclothes Border Patrol agent clinging to the hood of a moving car shot and killed the woman behind the wheel in Chula Vista Friday afternoon, authorities said.

There were several witnesses to the 1 p.m. shooting, which occurred on Moss Street near Oaklawn Avenue in a residential area lined by stucco apartment complexes and small homes.

Border Patrol agents were in the neighborhood to serve a felony warrant when the agent was struck by the woman's car, said Border Patrol Deputy Chief Rodney Scott.

The agent was lodged in the windshield and carried several hundred yards on the hood of the Honda, he said.
