Border Patrol agent shot a man near a Greyhound bus station in downtown El Paso.
KFOX 14 reports that agents heard gunshots near the bus station Thursday evening and rushed to the scene, where a man had been shot dead by another man.
Agents said they spotted the shooter running with a gun. He then pointed the gun at the agents, forcing them to open fire, according to a Border Patrol spokesman.
The suspect was taken to the hospital, where his condition was not immediately known.
“At this point it is a multiple agency investigation,” said El Paso Detective Mike Baranyay. “We are trying to identify additional witnesses. So until we get that all coordinated and conducted it will be a little premature for us to know exactly to know what caused the altercation.
