A Mexican national claims to be the man who shot and killed U.S. Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry, whose death is tied to the "Fast and Furious" gun-walking scandal.
Gustavo Cruz-Lozano, who says he killed Terry, turned himself in on Wednesday on charges related to a separate incident: threatening to kill Hidalgo County, Texas Sheriff Lupe Treviño.
But before he surrendered himself, Cruz-Lozano said in an exclusive interview with Univision News' daily news magazine show "Primer Impacto" that he murdered Terry during a firefight on Dec. 14, 2010, while the agent was on patrol near the U.S.-Mexico border in Arizona. Two AK-47 rifles found at the scene were linked to the botched Operation Fast and Furious, in which the U.S. government sought to track firearms sales to violent drug cartels. But it remains unclear whether those weapons were used to kill Terry.
Cruz-Lozano, 41, was not one of the several suspects arrested in the aftermath of Terry's slaying. But in an interview with Univision News, he insisted he is the one who pulled the trigger on Terry.
"We had a drug shipment and when they took us by surprise, people started surrounding them, and that's when we ambushed them," he told "Primer Impacto" correspondent Natalia Cruz. "When they started surrounding them and they had no time to react, I was the one, I was the one that killed him."

This guy just wants to be extradited to the U.S., where he’ll be received with open arms and never put to death. Free room and board for life. Mexico probably would hang’em.
He’ll probably be crashing at Holders house.
...botched Operation Fast and Furious, in which the U.S. government sought to track firearms sales to violent drug cartels.
Reporter is either dumb or a liar; F and F was intended to engender public approval of a Soros Administration gun grab.
F&F was Eric Holder’s backdoor attempt to shut down FFL’s (Firearms dealers) in the United States..
Scandal? what scandal?
Holder was in contempt of Congress, is that what you mean?
There ain't no steenkin' scandal.
Nobody's talking about it.
Hell, I'm in contempt of Congress these days..
The list, Ping
Let me know if you would like to be on or off the ping list
Thanks Red in Blue PA.
Exactly. US jail is far better than Mexico jail. He’s just bullshitting his way to that.
I agree. This doesn’t pass the sniff test. Why does a Mexican national turn himself in? He is probably insane or drug gang is paying his family or threatening them.
I beg to differ, about F&F not being a scandal, or “scandalous enough”....it is precisely the “scandal that won’t go away” and Holder & the Dems know this, and they assess how it is going to be brought up all during their
prideful new GUN CONTROL “conversation”. I wouldn’t be surprised at all if this new “confession” were not engineered to take the sting out of FAST AND FURIOUS, the scandal they really WANT to go away. They know how powerful it could be
or become, even as, admittedly, it’s been dissolved into not much of anything at this point.
Having said that, I don’t believe this new confession (attended by the most classically suspicious timing) will be mentioned at all by the MSM, they will leave that to FOX.
Still, I believe the confession has too much political value for Obama/Holder for them to let it lie fallow too long—you’ll hear it brought up when the time is right.
This guy just wants to be extradited to the U.S., where hell be received with open arms and never put to death. Free room and board for life. Mexico probably would hangem.
Oprahs next interview.
Topic. How guns affected this honest soul
Guest appearance . Barry O. Another opportunity to push his BS
Mexico doesn’t have the death penalty. The fact that we do is exactly why Mexico WON’T extradite him.
We’ll see.. He’d not get the death penalty in the U.S. No way.. Would team 0bama ever do that? No. Would he WOULD get is a nice, comfy cell with TV and all the amenities, just like the GITMO resort.
