The deadly drama at the Mexican border continues to play out in so many different way.

The latest: The Associated Press reports that the Cochise County Sheriff’s Department on Monday said that a Border Patrol agent fatally shot a Mexican man three times in the back as he tried climbing a ladder at the wall of the Arizona-Mexican border.

Sheriff’s spokesman Carol Capas said there was no indication the man, Carlos La Madrid, 19, tried to assault the agent before the shooting on March 21, AP reported. The agent’s name was not released. He was placed on administrative leave after the incident.

Authorities said La Madrid fled police in a truck in the border town of Douglas and was climbing the wall when another man started throwing rocks at the agent, AP reported. La Madrid’s truck contained 48 pounds of marijuana, AP reported.

The Border Patrol referred questions about the case to the FBI, which declined to comment because of the ongoing investigation, AP reported.
