Border Patrol Agent Kills 19 Year Old in Arizona

By Allan Lengel

Details are very sketchy, but one thing was clear: A Border Patrol agent shot and killed a 19-year-old man east of the Douglas port of entry Monday afternoon in Arizona, the Arizona Daily Star reported.

FBI spokesman Manuel Johnson told the paper that the incident began when Douglas police went after a suspected drug dealer in a car.

The driver, Carlos La Madrid of Douglas, drove toward the border, and at some point, rocks were thrown, the paper reported.

At some point, the agent shot La Madrid three times.
