Border Patrol Agent Shoots Woman; FBI, Chula Vista PD Investigate

The shooting took place around 1 p.m. Friday in west Chula Vista while agents served a warrant, officials said.

A U.S. Border Patrol agent fatally shot a woman in a South Bay neighborhood Friday afternoon.

Agents involved in the shooting were not in uniform but in plain clothes, the Chula Vista Police Department said.

An investigation will be conducted by the FBI and Chula Vista Police Department in cooperation with the Border Patrol and the United States Office of Inspector General.

The gunfire in the 600 block of Moss Street in Chula Vista was reported about 1 p.m., according to police and federal officials. The woman died at the scene.

The woman apparently was in a green Honda Accord near Woodlawn Avenue when she was shot, NBC 7 San Diego reported.

Officials said agents were serving a felony warrant when a deputy was hit by the car and carried several yards.

"The suspect was armed with a vehicle, and literally ran our agent down," CBP Chief Patrol Agent Rodney Scott told the news station.

The condition of the agent hit by the car is unknown at this time.

It is not known if agents from the Imperial Beach Border Patrol station were involved in the incident.

City News Service contributed to this report.

I was in that general vicinity at 1PM. Amazing how many unmarked SUVs began flashing lights and speeding to the area faster than you can say the words "damage control."

Gosh, I was armed with a vehicle today. Lucky I got away. If the officer was hit and carried for a distance of approximately 10 feet, I wonder how fast the car was traveling? Could this unlawful death have been avoided if the officers were in uniform and did not appear as a gang of thugs in the street that potentially frightened and startled the driver, a mother of 5?? Hopefully the truth of the matter surfaces.

there is a video of the entire incident thank God for SMART PHONES and hopefully light will be shed on the truth of what really happened opposed to what the FEDERAL government would have the public believe.

At this point I haven't seen any report by any of our Federal Authorities about what happerned, Just a lot of useless talk by those with a pre-formed opinion's and little real information, The F.B.I. is now involved now so I don't fear a whitewash but am willing to set back and see what they come up with in this horriable acident
Ed Sorrels September 29, 2012 at 11:31 PM
P.S. given the circumstances that I do know, I suspect that it was a bad shoot, But we need to wait a bit and see what the F.B.I. comes up with as none of us know all the fact's .

Okay, while I believe that this was a tragedy, and I wish that it had not happened....I also believe that if you've hit someone with your car...and they are sprawled accross your hood....YOU SHOULD IMMEDIATELY STOP YOUR CAR!!! Also, since this officer was able to keep control and aim & fire his weapon...It seems highly likely that he was (vigorously) identifying himself as a law enforcement officer. I understand that every one reacts to a traumatic event differently, but.....I'm pretty sure that any ONE of the above actions, should suffice...let alone all three things being in play....Oh, yeah...I do not believe for a minute that, had she STOPPED the car, when ordered to, she would not be in a morgue now. The whole event is beyond sad & tragic...for everyone involved.

Hi Ed. I could possibly concur IF the border patrol were uniformed. It seems this woman was driving down the street. Saw something that startled or frightened her. She may have been distracted, and hit a guy in the street and had him on the hood for approximately 10 feet or "several yards". Wonder how fast she was going?. If a gang member was on your hood and requested you stop, would you? Had he been uniformed, it might have been another situation. As a former LAPD, you realize attempted murder charge must include intent. It would be interesting to know if the car was moving forward, stopped, or in reverse just prior to the shooting. Sad situation..

So his partners that where asking qeashtion in her apartment's herd the gun going off stopped what there where doing ran out on to the street by then it was to late agent 007 told them she try to run him over and being government official's they took that story and ran with it. It is so amazing what the mind can do with a lil bit of intell photos what people witnessed eveadencie that is in front of your face that's all she needs to "REST IN PEACE" just to let the government and that undercover that has no heart and took a life no matter what she did or who she hung out with she was loving mother that did what she had to do to push her family forward and know she will do every thing in her power to fight for her children's to get the justice they will never get back but will make pointe on how the U.S likes to cover there tracks NO NO NO not this time u see she has high power people that would do what ever it takes so that this undercover gets what he has coming for being 007.
