Border officer shoots driver at Arizona crossing

Border officer shoots driver at Arizona crossing

The border crossing was initially closed after the shooting, but later reopened.

U.S. Customs and Border Protection said in a statement to the AP that the additional layers of concertina wire were added on government property following a request for additional assistance.

The border patrol official said smugglers drop off large groups as a diversion tactic to tie up law enforcement resources in order to move drugs across other parts of the border.

Of the 325 who were apprehended, 150 were juveniles.

Officers referred the tractor-trailer to a secondary inspection station, according to information obtained from CBP officials.

Garino said the man was shot by officers after reportedly trying to run over the agent.
