A Mexican military helicopter flew across the border and fired at U.S. border patrol agents, reports local Arizona news outlet News 4 Tucson. Two shots were fired from the Mexican chopper, but both missed the agents.
The incident occurred in the early morning hours on Thursday, southwest of the Village of San Miguel in Arizona. The U.S. Border Patrol released a statement saying the Mexican authorities were "on a drug interdiction operation" near the border. Luckily, "no injuries or damage to U.S. property were reported," Andy Adame, a Border Patrol spokesperson, told the NBC affiliate.
Mexican authorities have since contacted the U.S. and apologized for the shots, and the incident is currently under investigation.- -
