Four suspects sought in killing of border agent

Tuesday, July 10, 2012

Federal officials in Arizona announced that they were seeking four more suspects in the fatal shooting of U.S. Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry and that the FBI was offering a $1 million reward to track down the fugitives, believed to be in Mexico.
The revelations came Monday when federal prosecutors unsealed a grand jury indictment in Tucson that accuses a total of five people in the December 2010 shooting. One is in custody. A sixth defendant, also in custody, is charged with conspiracy related to robbery but not with Terry's death.
Authorities said the six were members of a "rip off crew" of Mexican bandits preying on illegal drug couriers in a remote canyon just north of the U.S. Mexico border. Terry and his Border Patrol team happened upon them. He was killed in a firefight that began with U.S. agents firing bean bags and ended with the bandits firing semiautomatic weapons, authorities said. Two of their firearms, both AK 47s, were recovered and traced to the federal Fast and Furious gun tracking operation.
