Immigrants Cleared in Border Agent Shooting Case

Back on December 14th, 2010, Border Patrol agent Brain Terry was shot and killed in Arizona. The day before the shooting, three immigrants in the area were arrested, but have now been cleared by federal agents.

Tuesday, in a written statement, a spokesperson for the U.S. Attorney’s Office in Arizona said that there is no evidence to tie the three immigrants to the shooting, but that two of them have plead guilty to immigration violations, and the third was expected to do the same on Wednesday.

Agent Terry was the agent killed in the attack, and no other agents were injured, and it has been determined that friendly fire did not play a part in the shootout.

A fourth initial suspect, who was shot during the shoot, is still being held on immigration charges, but has not been charged with Terry’s death
