A helicopter controlled by Mexican officials traveled across the border Thursday and fired on U.S. Border Patrol agents, a U.S. official said. Mexico apologized and no one was hurt in the incident, which is under investigation."At approximately 5:45 a.m. Thursday morning, a Mexican law enforcement helicopter crossed approximately 100 yards north into Arizona nearly 8 miles southwest of the Village of San Miguel on the Tohono O’odham Indian Nation while on a law enforcement operation near the border," Peter B. Bidegain III, a spokesman for the United States Border Patrol, said in an email to Time. "Two shots were fired from the helicopter but no injuries or damage to U.S. property were reported. The incident is currently under investigation."

ICE issued a statement that reads in part: "This incident may have been prevented if ICE had been notified about any of the multiple times Hernandez-Morales was released from local custody over the last few years. This is an impactful, scary example of how public safety is affected by laws or policies limiting local law enforcement agencies' ability to cooperate with ICE."
