U.S. Border Patrol Faces Lawsuit Following Fatal Shooting of a Mexican Teen

 The family of a Mexican teen fatally shot by the U.S. Border Patrol last week claims excessive force in a forthcoming lawsuit, Reuters reports.

Jose Antonio Elena Rodriguez, 16, was shot seven times in the back as agents opened fire on a group of rock throwers accused of dropping off drugs on the Arizona side of the border shortly after midnight Wednesday, according to Reuters.

A lawyer for Mexico’s Public Ministry in Nogales told Reuters the family will see legal action against the agent or agents responsible for Rodriguez’s death.

The Border Patrol declined to comment beyond an original statement about the shooting, which said an unnamed agent opened fire after smuggling suspects “began assaulting the agents with rocks” and defied orders to stop, Reuters reported.
