US officer at border crossing shoots driver going to Mexico

US officer at border crossing shoots driver going to Mexico

It started at around 7 p.m. Thursday night when CBP officers say they tried to stop a man driving into Mexico for a routine auto inspection.

U.S. Border Patrol said on Friday its resources were being stretched thin by larger and larger groups of Central American families left by smugglers in remote locations along the U.S. Mexico border.

On Wednesday, Nogales City Council passed a resolution that would sue the federal government if the barbed wire was not removed.

Earlier in the week, Mayor Arturo Garino told the local Nogales International that the razor wire was "lethal" to the town's residents.

The council's resolution says the razor wire would harm or kill anyone who scales the wall and "is only found in a war, prison or battle setting" and shouldn't be in downtown Nogales.

City officials say Army troops installed more horizontal layers of the wire along the border wall last weekend.

There was a similar incident at a different Nogales port almost three years ago.

Officers referred the driver of a Ford sedan, later identified as a 29-year-old Mexican male for additional inspection as he attempted to enter the US early Thursday morning. Entry to the USA was not affected.

Authorities closed the DeConcini Port of Entry near Nogales after a man was shot attempting to run over a border patrol agent on Thursday night.

The CBP said the request was for "high-risk urban areas commonly exploited by criminal smuggling organizations".

Nogales, a city of about 20,000 people, is largely reliant on Mexican shoppers and cross-border trade.
