By Steve Neavling

A 32-year-old mother of five in suburban San Diego is dead after a Border Patrol agent shot her while riding on the hood of her car Friday, Fox News reports.

Family members and authorities disagree on what happened.

Local police said Valeria Alvarado, 32, was fatally shot when she ran into an unidentified agent who was stuck on her hood.

Fearing for his life, he discharged his weapon to get the vehicle to stop,” Border Patrol Deputy Chief Rodney Scott said.

The shooting occurred just north of the Mexican border as agents were trying to serve a felony warrant to someone who was not Alvarado, Fox News reported.
