A U.S. Border Patrol agent based in South Texas was involved in a shooting near the Rio Grande on Sunday morning after he was assaulted, according to U.S. Customs and Border Protection.

The federal agent had been attempting to arrest a person near the U.S.-Mexico border in Eagle Pass, Texas, shortly before 10 a.m. local time when the individual “assaulted” the agent, the Department of Homeland Security agency said in a statement Sunday. It’s not clear how the person hurt the agent or what injuries he sustained.

The article goes on to state the following:

In response, the agent fired his gun. The alleged assailant was taken approximately 100 miles northeast to a hospital in San Antonio, Texas, for medical treatment. CBP did not specify whether the person was a woman or man, nor their immigration status or medical condition.

The agent is stationed in the Del Rio sector, one of nine Border Patrol hubs on the Southwest border, and specifically assigned to the Eagle Pass Station, one of 10 in Del Rio.
