Border Patrol Helicopter Comes Under Fire; FBI Investigates

By Steve Neavling

The FBI is trying to determine who fired shots at a Border Patrol helicopter on Friday, forcing the crew to make an emergency landing near the Mexican border.

The helicopter was carrying at least one Border Patrol agent during an operational mission along the Rio Grande near Laredo, Texas, when it came under fire, Reuters reports.

“The rounds penetrated and damaged the aircraft, forcing the pilot to make an emergency landing,” Special Agent Michelle Lee told Reuters.

No one was injured, she said.

It wasn’t clear this weekend whether the shots came from the American or Mexican side of the border, which the FBI is investigating.

The Texas Rangers also are helping investigate.
