SAN ANTONIO (AP) - The U.S. Border Patrol says agents fired
gunshots into Mexico after coming under attack while making a drug
bust along the Rio Grande.

Border Patrol spokeswoman Rosalinda Huey said Monday that no
agents were injured during a "fire fight" in Mission over the
weekend. She did not say whether anyone in Mexico was hit by Border
Patrol gunfire, citing the ongoing investigation.

Huey said Border Patrol agents were seizing a half-ton of
marijuana Saturday when the shootout began. She said a truck pulled
up on the Mexico side of the border when someone opened fire on the
agents.

n June, a Border Patrol agent fatally shot a 15-year-old
Mexican boy after authorities say a group trying to illegally enter
Texas threw rocks at officers near downtown El Paso.
