Associated Press SAN DIEGO — U.S. Customs and Border Protection agents fatally shot a motorist who refused to stop at California's border with Mexico. San Diego police say the shooting took place Monday night in a secondary vehicle inspection area near the San Ysidro Port of Entry. Police say the suspect's vehicle was blocked and he opened fire on the officers. KNSD-TV obtained video showing gunfire erupted as cars waited in line to get into the U.S. Shooting at the south border at San Ysidro San Diego-Tijuana. Thank you to all the agents that took care of all of us trapped during the shooting. #sandiegotijuana #southborder #mexico — Esteban Gerardo (@gerardo301986) June 4, 2019 Border agents yelled, "Get down, everybody get down!" At least a dozen shots were heard. The officers returned fire, and the suspect was hit. CBP officers and fire-rescue attempted life-saving measures, but he did not survive. Police say the name of the 23-year-old U.S. citizen was withheld for family notification. None of the seven officers involved was injured.
