A U.S. Border Patrol agent shot and killed a man Tuesday night near Sells on the Tohono O'odham Nation.

Initial reports indicate that the agent shot and killed a man who was assaulting another agent, said the Border Patrol in an emailed statement. The shooting occurred at 8 p.m.

The citizenship of the man who was shot has not yet been determined, the statement said.

The agency said it "regrets the loss of life" and that it is fully cooperating with the investigation led by Tohono O'odham Police and the FBI.

Arrest the Border Agent for using deadly force. Send the poor victim’s family 5 million US taxpayer dollars and a nice written apology from our dearest leader.

Under orders from the administration for impeding the path of an illegal immigrant?

How soon until we have more Holderized agents in jails, than we do patroling?

No doubt in my mind that if it turns out the “victim” is an illegal or sympathizer, this agent will be headed to another kangaroo court trial.

The power of a gatling gun.

Then there’s nothing to apologize for because there’s
nothing left.
