A Border Patrol Agent sitting inside his parked duty vehicle was fired upon from Mexico early Sunday morning, according to U.S. Customs and Border Protection.
The shooting occurred around 2:15 am, approximately 1.5 miles west of the San Ysidro Port of Entry. San Ysidro is roughly 40 miles south of San Diego, California.
The Border Patrol Agent quickly sped away to inspect his vehicle and noticed the driver’s side rear door took at least two bullet strikes. The agent was not injured and the gunfire is currently considered to have originated in Mexico, according to NBC News.
