How to Become a Bounty Hunter

Report: Border Patrol Shot, Killed Mexican Teen from Behind

The Border Patrol has maintained its agent opened fire on a 16-year-old because he was throwing rocks at authorities from the Mexican border to Arizona.   

But the USA Today is reporting that ten of the 11 bullets that struck Jose Antonio Elena Rodriguez in October hit him from behind, according to a report by medical examiners for the Sonora attorney general’s office. 

Border Patrol and the FBI, which is investigating the case, declined to comment.

“The only way I can fathom that report is that he was lying on his face when he was hit,” said Luis Parra, an attorney representing the Elena Rodriguez family.

Since January 2010, Border Patrol has killed 19 people – all but two along the U.S. -Mexican border.
