Tense moments at the Nogales Port of Entry Thursday as a driver is shot when he tried to hit customs and border protection officers at the Mariposa Crossing.  Paula Beeson, who heads up the Agency’s Tucson Sector, says the suspect swerved his car intentionally targeting agents to get across the port. Officers and a border

patrol agent open fired on the suspect.  The suspect was struck and transported to the hospital.  The suspect’s passenger sustained minor injuries and has been detained.  No officers or agents were injured.
