U.S. Border Patrol agent fires at armed militia member

AZBD Note: This is why it’s important for any group near the border to notify Border Patrol where they are. It’s also not very smart to run around in cammo as many drug smugglers and rip crews wear all cammo. Our advice to the militias in Texas; pick an earth tone color uniform and stop running around with masks on your faces and flipping off cameras like a bunch of idiots. Why this agent decided to start shooting is a mystery but its a good thing he didn’t hit his target. We have encountered Border Patrol agents in the field countless times and never had an issue. Announce your presence to the agent as soon as you see them and identify your group and most agents will be happy to have the extra eyes and ears.

MCALLEN, TEXAS – A Border Patrol agent pursuing a group of immigrants in a wooded area near the Texas-Mexico border on Friday fired several shots at an armed man who later identified himself as a militia member.

Border Patrol spokesman Omar Zamora said agents had been chasing a group of immigrants east of Brownsville on Friday afternoon when an agent saw a man holding a gun near the Rio Grande. The agent fired four shots, but did not hit the man. The man then dropped his gun and identified himself as a member of a militia. Zamora said no other details were immediately available.
