A Border Patrol agent indicted for the fatal shooting of a Mexican teen through the gaps of a border fence threw up after the shooting and said people were throwing rocks and struck a police dog.
Documents filed by prosecutors last week also reveal that Border Patrol Supervisor Leo Cruz-Mendez said he was surprised to see agent Lonnie Swartz at the fence on the night of the shooting in 2012. Swartz had been assigned to work at a nearby port of entry.
A federal judge has scheduled an August hearing to determine whether statements made by a Border Patrol agent can be used in his trial for the fatal 2012 cross-border shooting of a Mexican teenager.
