On Thursday, U.S. Customs and Border Protection will begin reviewing the death of a Mexican immigrant shot repeatedly with a Taser by Border Patrol agents. The 2010 incident went viral after bystanders leaked cellphone videos.

The agency's new use-of-force board will determine if the use of force that led to Anastasio Hernandez Rojas's death was in line with policy, or if there was misconduct.

The board will make recommendations to Commissioner Gil Kerlikowske regarding what lessons can be learned from the incident, including potential changes in policy, training or equipment. In an emailed statement, the agency said it would make the findings public but did not say when.
