AZBD Note: More illegal aliens committing murders Americans don’t want to commit, right Juan McCain?
Two Mexican nationals are being charged with the murder of an off-duty Border Patrol agent, who was shot over the weekend while on a fishing trip with his family, reports claim.
Customs and Border Protection agent Javier Vega, Jr. died after attempting to defend his family from bandits Sunday night near the South Texas town of Lyford. Vega’s father was also injured in the shooting, but is recovering at a local hospital.
“It was an attempted robbery,” said Willacy County Sheriff Larry Spence.
Two men – described by authorities in earlier reports only as “Hispanic” – driving an SUV approached the Vegas around 8PM. The men began to hold the family up, but were reportedly startled when they saw Vega had a gun holstered on his hip, the sheriff said.
