Border Patrol Shoots, Kills Man Who Drove Through Sierra Blanca Checkpoint

Those Border Patrol checkpoints can be deadly. This story came from KURV710, Fox News Radio:

The U.S. Border Patrol says an agent’s shout of “Gun!” led to the fatal shooting of a motorist who drove through a West Texas inspection checkpoint without stopping.

The statement says the man failed to stop, prompting a 30-mile pursuit by Border Patrol agents.

When the vehicle finally stopped, four agents were approaching when one shouted “Gun!” Two agents fired on the motorist, killing him.

The statement says a pistol-shaped pellet gun was recovered from the vehicle.

So remember, don’t pull a toy gun on people who have real guns.
